National Quality Standards for Volunteer Literacy Programs.
Laubach Literacy International, Syracuse, NY.
This document lists the national quality standards for volunteer literacy programs that were developed by Laubach Literacy Action in a 2-year project that began in 1994 and involved the following activities: extensive review of existing literacy quality standards and guidelines; analysis of previous national efforts to identify the elements associated with quality programs; and solicitation of input from national focus groups and local programs. The following items are addressed in the standards: governance (boards of directors/advisory groups, responsibilities and coordination of boards of directors/advisory groups, and organizational documents); program management (mission statements, long-range plans, public relations, fiscal management, human resource management, resource development, and program evaluation); program operations (learner recruitment, learner intake and placement, curriculum, instruction, instructional materials, learner assessment, social services support, and learner development); and volunteer development (volunteer recruitment, training for tutoring and nontutoring volunteers, and volunteer management).
