Work Evaluation for Economically and Educationally Disadvantaged Families of Barron County. Final Report.
This is the report of a project designed to bring a coordinated service program to rural disadvantaged by providing career cluster workshops for youth and marriage and family counseling for families. In the first of three chapters the summary, purpose, objectives, rational, and literature review are presented. Two project purposes are to assess the vocational interests and needs of the educationally, economically, and physically disadvantaged and accordingly to make recommendations to service agencies. The literature review is oriented toward discovering rural needs. Chapter 2 discusses project procedures such as the work evaluation referral system and the evaluation instruments (Singer simulated tasks and psychometric tests). Also included are reports on a school administrators' and counselors' program orientation meeting emphasizing the need for career cluster workshops for secondary youth, the career cluster workshops, and the marriage and family counseling program. The final chapter is devoted to program findings, evaluations, and recommendations. For example, the first part of the chapter focuses on high school counselors' evaluations of the program's benefits to their students. The final and major portion of the publication contains fifteen appendixes including career cluster workshop curriculum, survey and followup, a description of communications in healthy family relationships, and case studies.
