THERE WILL BE TWO TYPES OF FACULTY, THE COORDINATOR- TRAINER (WOMEN WITH FIELD EXPERIENCE WHO WILL SERVE AS COUNSELORS, SUPERVISORS, AND TEACHERS TO GROUPS OF TEN STUDENTS) AND A SMALL ACADEMIC FACULTY WHO WILL LECTURE IN SOCIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, SOCIAL WORK, AND EDUCATION AND PLAN THE CORE CURRICULUM TO BE INTEGRATED WITH ON-THE-JOB EXPERIENCE AND LEAD TO A JUNIOR COLLEGE DEGREE.
