Sourcebook for Improving Postsecondary Self-Employment Programs.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Two Year Coll. Student Development Center.
This sourcebook on small business/entrepreneurship programs is based on beliefs and experiences of staff members involved in a project to improve such programs in New York two-year colleges. The major section, a Handbook for Coordinators of Postsecondary Programs for Self-Employment, is a synthesis of ideas and recommendations in ten decision areas which a coordinator of programs for self-employment must address: (1) purpose or need, (2) clientele, (3) client characteristics, (4) program objective, (5) program structure and scope, (6) funding and support, (7) staffing, (8) recruitment and selection, (9) evaluation, and (10) program content. Basic questions and supportive materials are then outlined as a decision guide. A list of resources and instructional materials is appended. Six case stories of small business ventures (section 3) are presented with questions to guide class discussions, individual assignments, or instructor presentation or lecture. Guidelines for evaluation of program planning, recruitment and selection, instructional objectives, staffing, and program impact are also outlined (section 4). The final two sections contain a list of contact persons at postsecondary institutions and a topical paper by Walter Geier on recruitment and funding. (YLB)
