Using the All-Volunteer Concept in Adult Basic Education to Serve the Hard to Reach Student.
Based on a successful project in Nebraska, this manual was developed for use in establishing a structured all-volunteer adult basic education (ABE) program in small communities or satellite locations. The greater part of the manual covers the various steps a volunteer leader should follow to establish this kind of program, beginning with a section on how to identify a volunteer leader, for use by a project or state supervisor. The following topics are covered in the manual: (1) selecting the right volunteer leader; (2) committees to be established; (3) where to find volunteers; (4) assignment descriptions; (5) recruitment; (6) interviewing; (7) orientation; (8) training; (9) evaluation; (10) recognition; (11) terminating a volunteer; (12) sample forms and their uses; (13) student retention and follow-up; (14) public relations; (15) poems and letters in praise of volunteers; and (16) a volunteer leader plan of action form. Information on tax deductions for volunteering is also presented. (KC)
