Workshop on Nonprofessional Careers for Disadvantaged Youth, Summary of Proceedings (New York, December 14-15, 1966).
Over 50 persons with special experience and interest in nonprofessional careers attended the workshop to explore the basic issues raised by that experience and to point the way toward future program implications. Critical issues which emerged centered around how to develop training capability, the problems related to established institutional procedures, and resistances and barriers put forth by unions and professional groups. The experiences of Howard University, Lincoln Hospital, and Mobilization for Youth indicated that salaries and upward job mobility were among the major operational issues. At the administrative and policy levels the issues discerned were largely relevant to civil service and its potential contribution to nonprofessional careers. Success in the California State Civil Service experience with nonprofessional careers was presented. The final phase of the workshop related to planning, implementation, and coordination of existing nonprofessional careers programs at all governmental levels. (ET)
