A Trainee Upgrading Project for Newly Appointed Federal Civil Service Employees in the San Francisco Bay Area.
San Francisco Unified School District, CA.
The objective of this program, conducted by the San Francisco Public Schools in cooperation with the San Francisco Post Office, was to show that applicants, selected from all groups regardless of race, representing the young, middle aged and older persons and those lacking skills, could, with proper aid qualify for permanent employment in entry level Civil Service positions. Five hundred positions were made available to the San Francisco Post Office for a period of one year. The employees were selected and placed by the California State Employment Service which placed job orders in poverty areas. Since selection was not dependent on educational qualification, it was incumbent to improve the employees' basic skills. Classes were scheduled two hours a day - five days a week. (Author)
