Manual for Volunteer Literacy Site Managers.
This manual is designed to serve as a step-by-step guide for managers of volunteer adult literacy sites. It discusses day-to-day responsibilities, suggests procedures, and provides forms and directions for their use. The guide is organized in four sections. Following information on the guide and background information on literacy education in sections 1 and 2, the guide focuses on the position of manager in section 3. Topics covered include publicity for awareness and recruitment; initial contact; waiting list; interview/orientation/assessment; match/first meeting of volunteer tutors and adult literacy students; support--first month and ongoing; and match termination/rematch/termination. A 30-item bibliography lists books, articles, and tests. (Some information and examples are geared toward Philadelphia, where the program on which the guide is based was conducted.) (KC)
