Catholic Schools and Volunteers: A Planned Involvement.
Tedesco, Janis E.
Policies and procedures for developing a successful school volunteer program within Catholic schools are presented in this booklet. Chapter 1 describes the philosophy of a volunteer support program, which stresses the importance of volunteer involvement for developing schools as functional communities. Chapter 2 presents reasons why volunteers are both important and endangered and examines the role of the volunteer coordinator. Strategies for identifying volunteers, advertising opportunities, and approaching volunteers are outlined in the next two chapters. Guidelines for delegating responsibility and designing uniform professional procedures are provided in chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 highlights stewardship and accountability practices, and chapter 8 describes components of a volunteer education program--orientation, inservice training, and recognition. Administrator checklists for the principal and volunteer coordinator roles are presented in the final chapter. Appendices include time-in-lieu-of payment policies, a checklist for a volunteer orientation, sample content for a volunteer handbook, a committee budget grid, and an inservice program on planning and development.
