This manual is an introduction to the New Careers Program, a program developed to train the unemployed and/or underemployed in entry-level skills for nonprofessional jobs in the human services ("the fields of public service in which a person-to-person relationship, crucial to the provision of services, exists between the receivers and the providers of the services," including "health, education, mental health, social services, recreation, law enforcement, corrections, rehabilitation, housing, and employment"). Included are a glossary of New Careers Program components, a general introduction to the basic concepts and principles of the New Careers Program, an explanation of the training design, descriptions of the entry training program components and the training methods, and consideration of program certification and accreditation. Also included are a 23-item bibliography, samples of weekly schedules, and a presentation of the fundamentals of the New Careers Training Model. This manual is designed to be used in conjunction with SP 002 033, SP 002 034, SP 002 037, and other related curriculum manuals on specific occupational and skill areas. (SG)
