Wientge, King M.
The workshop represented the cooperative effort of business, industry, and education in metropolitan St. Louis to support the federal government in providing equal employment opportunity. Forty-five participants, recruited from high schools in the area educating mainly minority youth, were responsible for disseminating the workshop findings in the schools. Part II (VT 001 399) provides guidelines for faculty discussions in the participants' schools. The 15-day workshop consisted of 11 industrial visitations, 10 campus sessions, a final examination, and a banquet. The industrial visitations were conducted by the participating companies using lectures, discussions and observation of operations. Discussions were held between the participants and company representatives as to their experiences with minority youth (how to better equip students for industry, why well-equipped minority youth fail in industrial situations, and whether industry wants qualified minority youth). The campus sessions were titled: (1) The National Economy, (2) Guidance for Minority Youth, (3) Rewards of Work, (4) Development of Personality and Motivation, (5) Learning Theory and the Culturally Disadvantaged, (6) The Role of the Junior College, (7) Vocational and Technical Education, (8) Psychological Effects of Cultural Deprivation, (9) Employment of Minority Youth, and (10) Communication. Also included are the evaluation and outcomes of the workshop. (MM)
