A Project Sponsored by
of Battle Creek, Michigan

A project sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, Michigan and conducted by the National Information Center on Volunteerism (NIVOC) in 1978-1979. I believe these belong in my archives because I was project director for this fairly large project, authored much of the material and edited most of the rest.

The project was designed to support high school students in their community volunteering, primarily by enabling then to understand better, the background and meaning of what they were doing, as part of their classwork under the guidance and facilitation of a Teacher. In all, about fifty high schools around the country participated in the project for a year or two. Disappointingly, when the grant support money ran out, almost all the high schools phased out of the project.

The documents here entered into the achieves are curriculum materials for the use of the Teachers, including suggested materials they can share with the students. Almost all the materials are still intact, though there are a few relatively minor gaps.

Obviously, there are dated parts of these materials, but I still believe the principles and basic concepts are as relevant today as they were in 1978.
