Model Cities Training Program.
Tennessee Univ., Chattanooga.
The Model Cities Training Program, the first in the country, is a 10-session course to be conducted in seminar form under the direction of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The objective is to enable the 50 members of the Community Development Administration Board of Directors to: acquire knowledge of the structure of the Model Cities organization and the objectives of the program; develop an awareness of the decision-making process; and to establish and maintain a spirit of teamwork among board members so that they can make decisions based on a commitment to organizational goals without losing their identity and ties within the community. Funding has been provided under Title I of the Higher Education Act; there is no compensation for attending but reinbursements will be made for expenses (child care, food, transportation). Evaluation of attitudinal changes, retention and scope of factual materials presented, and progress in decision making and problem solving will be made. (Appendixes include the schedules for the 10 Saturday seminars. See AC 008 713 for evaluation report.) (EB)
