Resources for Recruiters.
D'Angelo, Diane; And Others
Recruitment of participants is a long-standing practice for many programs serving children and families, although the way in which it is approached varies greatly. This volume is presented as a practical tool for practitioners to use in systematizing their recruitment efforts. Section 1, "Reaching Diverse Families," contains an interactive workshop, with presenter's guide, overheads, and handouts. It is designed for all program staff, realizing that all staff members represent the program at some time. The workshop is planned to guide participants in developing a comprehensive recruitment program. Section 2, "Communicating with Families and Community Partners," represents the tool kit section, with a series of tip sheets offering guidance on how to write effectively for parents, advertise a program in one page or less, use the media effectively, develop focus papers, and use newsletters. Section 3 presents additional resources, offering a quick reference list of 31 resources, an annotated bibliography of 30 items, and a list of 17 resource organizations. Nineteen overheads and 6 tip sheets complement the workshop presentation. (SLD)
