Indianapolis Manpower Utilization Project of Flanner House. Phase II (February 1, 1968-April 30, 1968).
Flanner House, Inc., Indianapolis, IN.
A private agency, Flanner House of Indianapolis, combined efforts with the Federal government, the Indiana State Employment Service, and private industry to provide upward job mobility for undereducated individuals who are either unemployed or underemployed. The project was designed to show that: (1) Private industry is willing to finance an educational program for undereducated employees, (2) A neighborhood pre-employment program can prepare the unemployed for work, (3) Government and private sector in cooperation can create upward job mobility, and (4) This opportunity will be utilized, if offered on a neighborhood basis. The program is organized so that the testing, training, and job placement of the unemployed are government financed. However, private financing covers the cost of employee clinics and in-plant education provided to upgrade undereducated employees. The final report of this project is available as MP 000 751. (BH)
