Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational and Career Education.
Project HAND-UP (Helping Adolescents Needing Direction-Unlimited Partnership) was a 2-year program to enhance dropout prevention services to at-risk youth by establishing a closer linkage between Job Training Partnership (JTPA)-Ohio and the Ohio Department of Education's Occupational Work Adjustment (OWA) programs. The project's major activities included the following: (1) six regional conferences at which more than 150 OWA instructors met with local JTPA representatives; (2) five regional grant-writing workshops for more than 80 instructors who developed or improved their skills in writing proposals for JTPA-supported linkages; and (3) 12 OWA programs successfully formed a new linkage with their local JTPA program; and (4) the awarding of minigrants to 4 OWA programs. Additional linkages and grants were made during the project's second year. (KC)
