New Careers and Model Cities.
Pearl, Arthur
The author discusses the role of the New Careers training programs within a model city, arguing that the nature of human services in the city must change to meet pressing social needs, and that the essential inhumanity of human services in the city will not be altered if the only change is reassigning activities to the nonprofessional personnel. He states that a strategy for New Careers programs must be constructed which deals with the need for development of specific skills. Career ladders must not be dead ends; they must prepare the individual for available jobs, and they must leave open the opportunity for advancing to higher skill levels within a field. The author outlines steps necessary in the development of a New Careers training program, considering curriculum, leadership, manpower, program costs, systems analysis, evaluation, and other factors.
