The Content for Training in Project ENABLE.
Birnbaum, Martin M.; And Others
Education and Neighborhood Action for Better Living Environment (ENABLE) was planned as a process in which guided group discussions for parents could provide opportunities, within a social context, for identifying and exploring family and community concerns; plans for neighborhood and community action could encompass insights gained, directions determined, and decisions reached through parent group efforts; and the alteration, revision, or addition of institutional policies and programs could evolve from developing parent participation, and could correlate with other antipoverty programs or with long-term community development programs. Guidelines have been formulated for training group leaders and other workers, assessing the neighborhood and larger community, organizing advisory committees, forming and conducting groups, initiating neighborhood action, and preparing records and reports.
