COMMUNITY SELF-HELP PROGRAMS HANDBOOK.
California State Dept. of Employment, Sacramento.
THE FARM LABOR SERVICE OF CALIFORNIA HAS RECOGNIZED THAT THE RAPID PACE OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGES IN AGRICULTURE COMPELS FARM WORKERS TO LEARN NEW SKILLS IF THEY ARE TO MAINTAIN A HIGH LEVEL OF EMPLOYMENT. IN VIEW OF THIS, THE FARM LABOR SERVICE HAS PROCEEDED WITH THE IDENTIFICATION OF LOCAL TRAINING NEEDED TO ENABLE WORKERS TO MEET THE SKILLED DEMANDS OF OUR CHANGING ECONOMY AND TO INITIATE TRAINING PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO FULFILL THESE REQUIREMENTS. TWO BASIC PROGRAMS ARE BEING UTILIZED--(1) THE GOVERNMENT FUNDED MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAM, AND (2) A SELF-HELP, "GRASS ROOTS" TYPE OF PROGRAM UTILIZING LOCAL COMMUNITY AND PRIVATE RESOURCES TO THE MAXIMUM. MANY SELF-HELP PROGRAMS, INITIATED BY THE FARM LABOR SERVICE AND SUPPORTED BY COMMUNITY AND GROWER GROUPS HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY CONDUCTED THROUGHOUT THE STATE. THIS HANDBOOK HAS BEEN PUBLISHED TO SERVE AS A GUIDE FOR ALL OFFICES TO USE IN RECOGNIZING THE POTENTIAL FOR AND IMPLEMENTING SIMILAR SELF-HELP PROGRAMS. (ES)
