Programming and Training Booklet 3: How To Integrate Second and Third Goals into Programming and Training.
Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This booklet is one of five in the Peace Corps (PC) Programming and Training Guidelines collection that provides agency-wide programming and training guidance for PC staff and project partners, including advice on how to integrate the PC's cross-cultural goals into programming and training. Following an introduction, Section 1 describes the PC's three goals and how they are reflected in the work of the PC. The following are the three goals: (1) to help the peoples of interested countries and areas meet their needs for trained men and women; (2) to help promote a better understanding of the American people on the part of the peoples served; and (3) to help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of the American people. Section 2 provides ideas on how to ensure that the second and third goals are addressed throughout the service of the PC volunteer. It covers these areas of programming and training: guidelines for volunteers, project design, site development and placement, volunteer training, project implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. Section 3 explores activities and resources that staff and volunteers can use to achieve the second and third goals, both during and after service. Appendixes include a list of 15 related materials, acronyms, a glossary, and an index. (YLB)
