Programming and Training for Peace Corps Youth Development Projects. Supplement to Peace Corps Programming and Training System Manual. Information Collection & Exchange T0085.
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 youth development. It is intended for individuals involved in Peace Corps programming and training, such as Peace Corps staff, contractors or consultants, and staff of host country agencies, Peace Corps volunteers, counterparts, and beneficiaries. The supplement uses examples drawn from a wide variety of countries to illustrate the programming and training development process. The first section of the supplement provides an overview of Peace Corps' past, current, and potential role in youth development and addresses how the use of PATS can enhance that role. Following this introduction, four sections provide information on program assessment, project development, training, and evaluation. These sections correspond directly to sections in the PATS manual. Two appendixes provide (1) project goals, objectives, and milestones planning sample; and (2) task lists. (KC)
