Developing a Job Club Curriculum.
Mrowicki, Linda
This handbook describes the process of developing a curriculum in job search methods for use with refugees. It is based on a workshop, one of a series of four designed to improve the skills of refugee service provider staff. The job club is an innovative approach to providing refugees with skills to find a job by themselves. In the short-term program, a group of refugees with intermediate to advanced English language skills spends about 3 hours a day learning techniques for getting a job and actively seeking a job. Instructional topics include job readiness, job research, telephone usage, the actual job search, and job survival. The handbook contains the following: (1) the workshop agenda and objectives; (2) an overview of job club structure and staff roles; (3) reproductions of two articles and a flyer concerning job club formation and activities; (4) a description of a job club established by the Jewish Vocational Service; (5) a bibliography of employment-related materials; (6) a job club curriculum outlining specific behavioral objectives, prerequisite cultural topics, and prerequisite language for each of the five topic areas; (7) sample lesson plans; and (8) guidelines and standards for job club operation.
