KAUFMAN, JACOB J.
A COOPERATIVE COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM WAS INITIATED AND DEVELOPED IN THE MON-YOUGH REGION OF ALLEGHENY COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA. TO CORRECT SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC NEEDS THROUGH COMPREHENSIVE ADULT TRAINING, RETRAINING, AND EMPLOYMENT PROJECTS. THE MON-YOUGH COMMUNITY ACTION COMMITTEE WAS FORMED THROUGH THE COOPERATIVE EFFORTS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY, THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION, AND A NUMBER OF REGIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. A SERIES OF SEMINARS WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE HOW THE HUMAN RESOURCES OF THE AREA COULD BE DEVELOPED AND USED EFFECTIVELY. PRODUCTS OF THIS EFFORT WERE SEVERAL NEW COMMUNITY PROJECTS, DEALING WITH SUCH PROBLEMS AS (1) OCCUPATIONAL UTILIZATION OF YOUTH, (2) EDUCATION VERSUS SKILL TRAINING FOR DROPOUTS, (3) ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, (4) COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, (5) DEVELOPMENT OF LABOR-COMMUNITY SPECIALISTS, (6) USE OF LABOR MARKET INFORMATION BY UNEMPLOYED WORKERS, AND (7) DEMONSTRATION OF OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING. IN ADDITION, A RESEARCH GUIDE WAS DEVELOPED TO SYSTEMATICALLY IDENTIFY URGENT PRIORITIES FOR RESEARCH IN OVERALL AREA DEVELOPMENTS IN HUMAN RESOURCES. (JH)
