Fishman, Jacob R.; Terris, Shirley
This manual is intended to provide general guidelines and assistance to staff participating in the organization and development of a New Careers Program in a community. These activities are supported through contract with the Bureau of Work Programs, U.S. Department of Labor, as part of the New Careers Program, Section 123(a)(4) of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 as amended (Scheuer Amendment).

The manual includes: (1) an outline or checklist of steps and components to be followed in proposal and program development, (2) a narrative discussing in greater detail several of the key items listed in the outline, (3) a brief description of a job development model being used in a community mental health center, (4) a sample proposal which was developed by an urban community under the auspices of the New Careers Program, and (5) a selected bibliography of available references.
