Experimental program for mobilizing college student volunteer services to communities: North Carolina Volunteers, final report by George H Esser( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experiment was conducted in mobilizing college students for summer assistance in community development and poverty programs. Approximately 100 student volunteers were chosen to participate on the bases of their stability, maturity, ability to communicate, and dedication. They were placed in six areas where comprehensive community action programs were underway. The volunteers took part in a varied program which included--(1) intensive social work, (2) day care centers, (3) construction, (4) public health, (5) adult education, and (6) job placement. There was some dissatisfaction on the part of both supervisors and volunteers, and suggestions for future programs centered about (1) training, (2) organization, and (3) coordination with local projects. The continuation of some projects started by the volunteers as well as the creation of volunteers in service to america (vista) and similar projects incorporated by other colleges and universities attest to the impact of the original program.

The teacher aide in North Carolina's comprehensive school improvement project : A joint undertaking of the State Board of Education and the Ford Foundation through the North Carolina Fund by Frank C Emmerling( Book )

2 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the selection, characteristics, and utilization of teacher aides in the comprehensive school improvement project. An aide was assigned to three teachers in the project to assist them with clerical, instructional, technological, and general duties. Selection criteria included ability and experience in motivating and working with children, emotional stability, adaptability, good health and intelligence, willingness to work with all cultural groups, knowledge of safety and first aid, and typing skill. The average aide was found to be a young woman of 32, with children, an area resident (small town or rural), with more than the minimum 2 years of college, and used to dealing with children in church-related activities. Training was mostly on-the-job. After working as aides, 49 percent were planning for teacher certification, 27 percent were not, 16 percent were already certified, 5 percent were undecided, and 3.5 percent did not respond. Listed as problems by 15 percent were teacher competition for their services, unclear duties, and lack of space to work with large groups. Questionnaires and depth interviews after the 1st year revealed that most school personnel strongly favor the use of aides. However, more men would be desirable (early retirees are a possible source). Advancement and use of aides for personal support to underachievers and the disadvantaged needs further study. (Af)
