School Volunteer Resource Guide.
Wisconsin Public Television, Madison.; Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This guide to implementing a school volunteer program was developed for the 1995 Wisconsin Volunteer-A-Thon project, which was intended to encourage individuals, schools, organizations, and corporations to volunteer time to youth and education. Part 1 contains a timeline for the implementation of the project, a description of how to participate, pledge forms for schools and volunteers, and a reproducible certificate of appreciation. Part 2, "Adult Volunteers in the School," includes information on how to start, design, and organize a volunteer program; contains a sample school board policy on school volunteers; and includes a teacher's guide to using and recognizing volunteers, ideas for involving retired persons and planning intergenerational programs, and a discussion of risk management and resources for volunteer risk management. Part 3, "Youth Service-Learning," discusses service-learning contracts, the elements of effective service-learning activities, ways to integrate service learning into the curriculum, and other ideas for organizing community service projects. Part 4 contains eight appendices: A Family-Community-Schools Partnership Framework; a checklist for schools; and a sample survey of interest for volunteers; a sample volunteer screening reference letter; a sample of a volunteer's emergency information form; a sample volunteer's evaluation of a short-term school program form, and a sample of a school volunteer's evaluation of program form.
