Volunteer Evaluation System 1989-1990.
Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council, PA.
The Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council developed a Volunteer Evaluation System. Its objective was to create a way to gain knowledge of volunteers' skills and place them in appropriate volunteer positions. A five-step system was created to collect information about volunteers at set intervals and pass it along to appropriate staff members. The steps were inquiry/orientation; interview; volunteer training through a workshop; testing of the 12-hour probationary period; and an ongoing review system, with a scheduled review after every 50 hours of instruction. A new tutor data application form was also developed. Space was provided for comments by the volunteers regarding training and the five-step process and observations by the staff of the volunteer's potential. An objective that was not achieved was the provision of a process for staff, volunteer, and student to assess the program's procedures. (Appendixes include the volunteer intake form; an information packet with volunteer job descriptions, workshop schedule, workshop registration form, mission statement, history, and volunteer data form/application; questionnaire; and volunteer data form.)
