AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM REPORT--1964-65, A GUIDE TO CONDUCTING A COMMUNITY-WIDE COMPENSATORY EDUCATION PROGRAM BASED ON THE ACT EXPERIENCE.
PETERSEN, JACQUELYN L.; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT ON THE HARLEM ASSOCIATED COMMUNITY TEAMS, INC. (ACT) AFTER-SCHOOLS PROGRAM FOR INSCHOOL YOUTH DESCRIBES THE PROJECT'S REMEDIAL, TUTORIAL, AND STUDY PROGRAMS. OTHER PROGRAMS HAD ACADEMIC AND CULTURAL ENRICHMENT FEATURES, AND SOME CONCENTRATED ON INTERGROUP RELATIONS, NEGRO HERITAGE, GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING, AND PARENT EDUCATION. YOUTH SERVICE CENTERS OFFERED AFTER-SCHOOL AND SATURDAY SESSIONS STAFFED BY LICENSED TEACHERS, ADVISORS, ASSISTANT TEACHERS, AND AIDES FROM THE ACT YOUTH LEADERSHIP CORPS. THE MAJOR FOCUS IN MANY OF THE PROGRAMS WAS ON GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING FOR THE STUDENTS, WHO WERE RECRUITED BY AGENCY AND CHURCH REFERRAL AND BY VARIOUS COMMUNITY CAMPAIGNS. IT IS NOTED THAT THE PROJECT NEEDS REALISTIC PERSONNEL SELECTION CRITERIA AND A STRONGER TRAINING AND EVALUATION PROGRAM. TO ENCOURAGE SUCCESSFUL INDIGENOUS LEADERSHIP IN ANTIPOVERTY PROGRAMS, IT SHOULD TRAIN VERY CAREFULLY THE ASSISTANT TEACHERS RECRUITED FROM THE COMMUNITY. THERE ALSO SHOULD BE COOPERATION BETWEEN AGENCY AND BOARD OF EDUCATION AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS. LICENSED BOARD OF EDUCATION COUNSELORS COULD ACT AS LIAISON BETWEEN AGENCY, CENTERS, HOMES, AND SCHOOLS. THE APPENDIXES TO THIS REPORT CONTAIN DATA ON CENTER PERSONNEL AND LOCATIONS, AND COPIES OF VARIOUS FORMS USED IN THE PROJECT. (NH)
