A Case Study of Community Based Education.
This presentation will describe an educational program that has been developed through the co-operation of several government and voluntary agencies in a semi-rural community in NSW, Australia. The program involves training volunteers to support isolated and needy families living in the area and who have come to the attention of health and welfare organisations. The program that has been developed uses an experiential learning model and is conducted over an eight week period. The presentation will discuss the context in which the program is delivered, an overview of the program itself and the learning outcomes that have occurred for the volunteers as a result of participating in the program
