Colorado Learn and Serve: School-Based & Community-Based Program Profiles, 1997-98.
Vadeboncoeur, Jennifer A., Ed.; Cumbo, Kathryn Blash, Ed.
This report provides a qualitative evaluation of Colorado's 56 Learn and Serve programs. It contains descriptions of 39 K-12 school-based programs and 17 community-based programs funded during the 1997-98 grant cycle. The profiles were written by the program directors, and each profile provides an overview of the program and includes general information about the community and the community members participating in the program. Details are also offered on the service-learning projects and the young people participating; the goals, assessments, and accomplishments of the projects and participants; and the challenges of implementing service-learning programs. A final component of each report offers some reflections about the program and discusses issues that require further attention. The profiles show how the programs have developed over time and indicate whether a program is new or has been funded for years. The report is divided into five sections and includes information on 4 elementary-school programs, 14 middle- and junior-high school programs, 8 high-school programs, 3 K-12 schoolwide programs, and 15 community-based programs. The descriptions include contact information, amount of funding, number of participants, number of volunteers, participant hours, and volunteer hours. An appendix presents the program-narrative guidelines. (RJM)
