American Association of Retired Persons, Washington, DC.; National Association of Partners in Education, Inc., Alexandria, VA.
This book offers guidance for persons interested in planning an intergenerational school partnership program. Intergenerational partnership programs are designed to bring generations together in the school setting, through activities and experiences that benefit everyone involved. They encourage older persons from the community to volunteer to help students. The booklet presents a 12-step program planning and implementation process developed by the National Association of Partners in Education. The 12 steps are as follows: (1) awareness; (2) needs assessment; (3) goals and objectives; (4) potential resources; (5) program design; (6) recruitment; (7) orientation; (8) assignment; (9) training; (10) retention; (11) recognition; and (12) monitoring and evaluation. The guide also contains an annotated list of six resources available from the American Association of Retired Persons, the National Association of Partners in Education, and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program.
