Clinic Recruitment Manual
As part of LIFT's Missouri Parent Information and Resource Center (PIRC) project, funded through a U.S. Department of Education grant, Parents as Teachers-trained parent educators were hired to recruit families from local medical clinics into PAT, family literacy, and other programs. This recruitment effort was a pilot approach to getting new families involved, and it turned out to be extremely effective. It was estimated that 700 individuals would be enrolled into various programs during the first year of the PIRC; in actuality, 996 individuals were enrolled.
This manual was designed through the collective experiences of Kathy Zeisel and Sarah Beaman-Jones, two of the recruiters in the St. Louis area.
