The handbook contains ideas, worksheets, and sample forms to assist in the administration of volunteer programs teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to refugees. Chapters address: (1) planning (finding a coordinator, planning the program, assessing the need, and defining the volunteer's job); (2) recruitment (locating volunteer teachers, gathering volunteer data, and interviewing); (3) training (making arrangements and providing program orientation); (4) placement (locating students, gathering student data, assessing student language needs, connecting student with tutor, and keeping records); and (5) recognition (expressing appreciation in a variety of ways, the exit interview, and program evaluation). Appended materials include a list of volunteer ESL programs in Washington assisted by the Tacoma Community House; a list of state-funded refugee classes in Washington; a 55-item bibliography of ESL texts, supplementary materials, vocational ESL texts and materials, sources of background information, and Indochinese refugee education guides, with publishers' addresses; and checklists of state literacy objectives.
