How to Tame the CETA Beast. An Advocacy Manual for Older Women.
Older Women's Educational Fund, Oakland, CA.
Because older women have been conspicuously absent from Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) employment and training programs, this advocacy manual focuses on the employment needs of middle-aged and older women. The manual is divided into nine sections. The first section examines CETA itself, both in law and regulations, and discusses how it functions in practice, especially on a local level. Section 2 focuses on the older woman in terms of the displaced homemaker, the older worker, and the CETA connection. Section 3 details the proposal-writing process followed by a section (4) on "blue sky" proposals, which encourage innovative, job-creating ideas. Section 5 discusses the data game, while section 6 presents contradictions and pitfalls of the data game and how to work around them. Section 7 presents information on the theory and practice of advocacy, and legal rights and redress are discussed in section 8. The final section presents ideas for future action. A list of resources, glossary of CETA terms, and other related materials are appended. (BM)
