The Design & Management of Community Projects--A Team Approach.
Hubbard, Robert L.; Ennis-Applegate, Mari
This manual contains materials for a 2-week workshop to train extension staff and community leaders working at the village level in the Solomon Islands. The aim of the course is to improve participants' skills so they are better able to help communities and community groups design and manage community projects. An introduction addresses the team approach in which participants are divided into small teams composed of a mix of government extension officers, nongovernmental field workers, and community leaders who participate in a variety of practical learning experiences; other methods include small action plays, handouts, worksheets, and flip charts. Intended participants, location, and training schedule are also discussed. The manual is divided into six parts. Part 1 introduces the workshop. Parts 2-5, the heart of the training course, set out the steps in developing a community project, namely: assessing needs, planning a project, implementing the plan, and evaluating the project. Part 6 covers participant evaluation of the workshop. Each part is organized by sections: title and time required, aims to be achieved by participants, preparations to be completed by trainers before the start of the section, materials needed, trainer overview summarizing content, and trainer procedures and participant activities. The manual's 29 handouts, 17 flip charts, and 5 work sheets are provided where appropriate throughout the document. Contains 29 references. (YLB)
