Job Training in Michigan. An Inventory.
Michigan Governor's Office for Job Training, Lansing.
This document lists 35 training programs in Michigan that provide job training assistance to nearly 1,000,000 people, with an annual investment of more than $800 million in federal, state, local, and private funds. The programs illustrate the two-fold purpose of job training: to build and maintain Michigan's reputation for a skilled, versatile work force, and to provide the opportunity for all persons to participate in that work force. This first survey includes efforts funded at least in part by public agencies. Programs are listed under the following categories: dislocated workers, disadvantaged workers, older workers, youth, adults, handicapped and disabled, migrants, Native Americans, veterans, company-specific training, Michigan National Guard, displaced homemakers, and offenders. Each program listing tells who is eligible, what services are provided, and where further information can be obtained, and provides information about funding and persons served. In addition, the inventory lists projects sponsored by the Governor's Office for Job Training Projects. Addresses for Service Delivery Area Offices and Michigan Employment Security Commission Offices are also included. (KC)
