PROPOSAL TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE IN TRAINING, TESTING, MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION TO THE NEW YORK CITY BOARD "PROJECT CAMP."
SCIENTIFIC RESOURCES INCORPORATED (SRI) PROPOSES TO HELP THE NEW YORK CITY YOUTH BOARD TO DEVELOP A CAMP PROJECT FOR DISADVANTAGED ADOLESCENT BOYS. SRI WILL PROVIDE HUMAN RESOURCES CONSULTANTS, YOUNG MEN WITH DISADVANTAGED BACKGROUNDS WHO HAVE BEEN TRAINED FOR LEADERSHIP IN POVERTY PROGRAMS. THESE CONSULTANTS WILL BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE PROFESSIONAL CAMP STAFF AND THE 75 SELECTED BOYS, WILL SERVE AS GOAL MODELS, AND ALSO WILL BE ABLE TO OFFER SUGGESTIONS FOR MODIFYING THE PROGRAMS. IN ADDITION, THEY WILL AID A TEAM OF EXPERT CONSULTANTS IN DEVELOPING EDUCATIONAL AND TESTING MATERIALS. WITH THE AID OF SRI SPECIALISTS THE PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP EDUCATIONAL TECHNIQUES AND MEDIA APPROPRIATE TO THE NEEDS OF THE CAMPERS, AND THE BOYS THEMSELVES WILL HELP CONCEIVE AND PRODUCE THESE MATERIALS. SRI HAS DEVELOPED AN OUTLINE AND SCHEDULE OF PRESERVICE AND INSERVICE TRAINING FOR THE TOTAL STAFF, PROFESSIONALS AS WELL AS NONPROFESSIONALS, AND A RESEARCH DESIGN WHICH INCLUDES VARIOUS TESTS AND TECHNIQUES FOR EVALUATING SCREENING METHODS. THE POST-CAMP GOALS OF THE PROJECT ARE TO ENABLE THE BOYS TO RETURN TO SCHOOL, ENTER A JOB TRAINING PROGRAM, FIND A JOB OR CAREER, OR BECOME HUMAN RESOURCES CONSULTANTS IN SIMILAR CAMPS. (NH)
