MCKEE, JOHN M.; AND OTHERS
THE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT AT DRAPER CORRECTIONAL CENTER AIMS TO SHOW THAT VOCATIONAL TRAINING LEADING TO EMPLOYMENT, INTENSIVE COUNSELING, BASIC EDUCATION CLASSES, AND A PROGRAM OF COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP OF RELEASEES CAN DECREASE THE RATE OF RECIDIVISM AND EFFECT ENOUGH BEHAVIOR CHANGE IN INMATES TO TURN THEM INTO USEFUL CITIZENS. TRAINING OBJECTIVES ARE--(1) TO TEACH A GROUP OF YOUTHFUL OFFENDERS A TRADE (COURSES OFFERED ARE WELDING, RADIO AND TV REPAIR, APPLIANCE REPAIR, AUTO MECHANICS, BARBERING, BRICKLAYING, AND TECHNICAL WRITING), (2) TO CONSTRUCT PROGRAMED MATERIALS, (3) TO ASSESS WAYS TO IMPROVE TRAINING AND INSURE PLACEMENT AND GUIDANCE OF TRAINEES AFTER PAROLE, AND (4) TO MAKE TRAINING MATERIAL AVAILABLE TO OTHER INSTITUTIONS. SUPPLEMENTARY CLASSES ARE GIVEN IN REMEDIAL READING AND PERSONAL-SOCIAL SKILLS. THE AUTO MECHANICS COURSE, REVIEWED IN DETAIL IN THIS REPORT, WAS DEVELOPED AROUND COMMERCIAL TRAINING MATERIALS INCLUDING A PROGRAMED TEXT. NEEDS OF AREA EMPLOYERS, AVAILABILITY OF EQUIPMENT, AND THE CAPABILITIES OF TRAINEES WERE CONSIDERED IN COURSE PLANNING. A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF THE COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN EMPLOYED AS SUBPROFESSIONALS IN WORK-STUDY PROGRAMS IS UNDERWAY TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THEIR WORK AT DRAPER ON THEIR COLLEGE AND CAREERS.
