Parallel Volunteer Learning during Youth Programs
Lesmeister, Marilyn K.; Green, Jeremy; Derby, Amy; Bothum, Candi
Journal of Extension, v50 n3 Article 3IAW2 Jun 2012
Lack of time is a hindrance for volunteers to participate in educational opportunities, yet volunteer success in an organization is tied to the orientation and education they receive. Meeting diverse educational needs of volunteers can be a challenge for program managers. Scheduling a Volunteer Learning Track for chaperones that is parallel to a multi-day retreat for teens, addressed this need. Authors discuss the need for the learning track, implementation, evaluation, and program impact. Taking opportunities to meet adult educational needs during youth events can be an effective and efficient use of volunteer time at local and state levels.
