MCKEE, JOHN M.
YOUTHFUL OFFENDERS SERVING PRISON SENTENCES WERE EXPERIMENTAL SUBJECTS IN A MANPOWER TRAINING PROGRAM INVOLVING COURSES IN WELDING, APPLIANCE REPAIR, RADIO AND TELEVISION REPAIR, AUTO REPAIR, BARBERING, TECHNICAL WRITING, AND BRICKLAYING. THESE COURSES LASTED 26 OR 52 WEEKS, AND EACH HAD AN ENROLLMENT OF 10 STUDENTS. STUDENT EVALUATION AND SELECTION WAS COMPLETED FOR SEVEN COURSES, AND COUNSELING AND TRAINING STARTED. FACILITIES REMODELING WAS NEARLY COMPLETED. PUBLIC RECEPTION OF THE PROJECT WAS EXCELLENT, AND JOB PLACEMENT EFFORTS RESULTED IN SOME JOBS FOR SPRING GRADUATES. THE PRODUCTION OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS WAS APPROXIMATELY 2 WEEKS BEHIND SCHEDULE. NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE STATE PARDON AND PAROLE BOARD WERE BEING CARRIED OUT ON BEHALF OF THOSE INMATES WHOSE RELEASE DATES DID NOT COINCIDE WITH THEIR TRAINING COMPLETION DATES. THREE STUDENTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA WERE EMPLOYED AS MEMBERS OF THE COLLEGE COUNSELING CORPS ON A COOPERATIVE BASIS. THE APPENDIXES INCLUDE A SAMPLE ENROLLMENT APPLICATION, AN OUTLINE OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS, SAMPLE TRAINEE PERSONAL DATA FORM, TRAINEE JOB LOCATION PREFERENCE BY CITIES, AND PAROLE SCHEDULE DATES FOR EACH TRAINEE.
