Measuring the Impacts of a Volunteer-Based Community Development Program in Developing Volunteers' Leadership Skills
Meier, Amy; Singletary, Loretta; Hill, George
Journal of Extension, v50 n2 Article 2RIB1 Apr 2012
This article summarizes the results of an evaluation of the impacts of a community development program to develop leadership skills in its adult volunteers. The evaluation featured 20 questions about leadership skills learned as a result of volunteer experiences. Data analysis strategies beyond a simple means ranking resulted in evidence indicating that the variable on personal time management skills is strongly correlated with other important leadership skills that community development volunteers learned. Therefore, as Extension professionals design training programs for community development volunteers, it is recommended that they focus efforts on developing personal time management skills as a major component.
