Proposal for a Job Preparedness Center at Saltville, Virginia.
Virginia Highlands Community Coll., Abingdon.
This report offers a fine example of a community college responding to a community need. Virginia Highlands Community College (Virginia) proposes establishment of a job-preparedness center at Saltville, Virginia (a small company town), to provide training that will equip approximately 600 workers for new jobs in the area after the existing chemical plant closes. The center is expected to provide training in basic communication skills, reading and mathematics, and detailed training for specific jobs. Activities will be coordinated with other local, state, and federal agencies to avoid duplication and assure maximum benefits. The following aspects of the center are discussed: proposed schedule for the project, proposed budget and personnel supplement, evaluation criteria, counseling, job training, and adult basic education. The center will be in operation by September 1971, and completed by September 1973. (CA)
