A Community-Based Volunteer After-School Activity Program Created for Middle School Students.
Greaser, Thomas C., Jr.
This practicum was designed to provide an after-school activity program to middle school students not engaged in interscholastic sports. Utilizing community volunteers, an enrichment-prevention program that featured 19 different activities in 2 class sessions per week over a 10-week period was developed and implemented. Activities included computers, investing, embroidery, study skills, science projects, Spanish, fashion, drama, aerobics, old-fashioned board games, chorus, jewelry making, quilting, dance, military history, and journalism. The activities utilized volunteer teachers, parents, high school students, and community members to provide instruction and support. Analysis of volunteer, student, and parent surveys indicated strong support for the activities and the continued existence of the program. (Six appendices include lists of possible activity offerings, a sample volunteer information form and survey, activity descriptions, and student and parent surveys. Contains 27 references.) (MDM)
