Working with Supervisors and Counterparts. Developing a Supervisor and Counterpart Workshop: Sample One-Day Workshop, Other Agenda Designs and Session Plans. A Supervisor/Counterpart Model Handbook: A "How To" Workbook.
Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This manual combines best practices for involvement of supervisors and counterparts in programming, training, and volunteer activities from the three regions of the Peace Corps. Its intent is to offer ideas for participatory development to supplement the work being done with partners at posts. It is designed to help associate Peace Corps directors (APCDs), program managers, programming and training officers (PTOs), and training staff identify, learn from, train, and support their counterparts and supervisors. The manual is divided into three sections. Section 1, Working with Supervisors and Counterparts, provides an overview of who community partners are and why they are valued, along with a timeline of opportunities for involving them throughout the volunteer cycle. Section 2, Developing a Supervisor and Counterpart Workshop, provides the "core" components derived from field practices for a one-day supervisor/counterpart training, including an agenda and session plans. Section 3, A Supervisor/Counterpart Model Handbook, offers a template than can be customized as a resource for particular supervisors and counterparts. (YLB)
