IN A DISCUSSION OF THE RICHMOND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEMONSTRATION PROJECT FOR TRAINING SUBPROFESSIONALS, THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES OF THE PROJECT ARE DISCUSSED--(1) RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION OF PERSONNEL, AND (2) BASIC, INSERVICE, AND OTHER TRAINING PROCEDURES. THE PROJECT TRAINS LOW-INCOME INDIVIDUALS FOR SUBPROFESSIONAL JOBS IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THE SCHOOLS AND FOR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION WORK. IT IS FELT THAT BEFORE TRAINING BEGINS AN INITIAL JOB DESCRIPTION SHOULD BE DEVELOPED SO THAT THERE WILL BE NO AIMLESS TRAINING, AND THAT TRAINING SHOULD PROVIDE ACTUAL WORK EXPERIENCE WITH RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE TRAINEE APPROPRIATE TO HIS TRAINING LEVEL. FOR IT TO BE MEANINGFUL, TRAINING ALSO SHOULD LEAD TO A JOB. A SAMPLE JOB DESCRIPTION IS APPENDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM CONTRA COSTA COUNCIL OF COMMUNITY SERVICES, 2717 NORTH MAIN STREET, SUITE 9, WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA 94596, FOR $1.00. (JL)
