Paris, Alice Somerville; Woolridge, Schadell
Detailed practical information is provided in this guidebook describing the services and resources needed to increase the participation of rural minority women in training for non-traditional jobs. Designed for use by a variety of organizations (women's clubs, service organizations, government agencies, and vocational/technical schools), the manual covers program development stages from initial planning to evaluation. Chapter I discusses program design, staffing requirements, and the process of locating and equipping an office. Chapter II lists sources of information for determining career trends in the target area, locating job training opportunities for women, and protecting women's job rights. Chapter III identifies services typically needed, i.e., recruitment, counseling, job placement, training program placements, and referrals. Chapter IV describes promotional and fund raising activities and lists specific steps for using the media and personal appearances to gain community support. Techniques for fund raising cover private foundations, charities, government agencies, and a variety of community-based projects. A bibliography of 24 entries lists sources of information about traditional and non-traditional job and educational opportunities for women, with emphasis on rural and minority groups. (JH)
