Employment and Educational Services in the Mobilization for Youth Experience.
Weissman, Harold H., Ed.
This is one of four volumes constituting an intellectual history of a pioneer inner city youth project: Mobilization For Youth, a multi-discipline social agency in New York's lower east side Puerto Rican slum, geared to demonstration, research, and social action in eradicating poverty and attendant ills. It offers insights into the techniques which account for the successes and failures in the fields covered. Topics discussed center on the foci of employment and educational opportunities including: (1) trainee processing; (2) vocational counseling; (3) remedial education; (4) job placement; (5) parent education programs; (6) school community relations; (7) guidance programs; (8) improvement in the quality of teaching; and (9) educational innovation: the case of an external innovation organization.
