Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
The Peace Corps Programming and Training System (PATS) manual is designed to help field staff members of the Peace Corps train volunteers. This supplement to the PATS manual was developed to provide complementary information about key aspects of Peace Corps programming and training for agriculture. It is intended for individuals involved in Peace Corps agriculture programming and training, such as Peace Corps staff, contractors or consultants, and staff of host country agencies. The supplement uses examples drawn from a wide variety of countries to illustrate the process of programming and training design. The first section of the supplement provides an overview of agriculture projects and explains how using PATS can enhance project effectiveness. Following this introduction, four sections provide sector-specific information on program assessment, project development, training, and evaluation. These sections correspond directly to sections in the PATS manual. Four appendixes provide the following: (1) project goals, objectives, and milestones planning samples; (2) Peace Corps volunteer assignment description cover; (3) form for Peace Corps volunteers quarterly workplan and report; and (4) sample site survey form.
