A Guide for Training Neighborhood Workers in a Community Action Agency.
National Committee on Employment of Youth, New York, NY.
One of a pair of publications prepared under contract with the Office of Economic Opportunity, this guide is designed to help trainers, administrators, and other Community Action Agency staff prepare themselves and their agencies for the recruitment, selection, training, and supervision of neighborhood workers. Topics covered include developing an effective training program for subprofessionals, the role of the indigenous subprofessional neighborhood worker and his recruitment and selection, basic curriculum for training the neighborhood worker, and specific activities and teaching techniques which may be used in training. Typical problems of planning, timing, staffing, selection, and training are raised and suggestions for their avoidance or solution are given, based on the experiences of agency and training staffs. An annotated bibliography contains works on the background and theory of subprofessional personnel and illustrations of training and use of subprofessionals in such fields as community action, education, physical and mental health, social welfare, and youth and corrections work.
