Neighborhood Manpower Programs. Manpower Training Series.
Mezoff, Maurice W.
In order to assist both volunteers and staff at all levels in planning and operating manpower services in neighborhoods, an attempt has been made to place "neighborhood method" in its proper context as a part of a comprehensive manpower program, and to provide guidelines for integrating manpower activities into a total neighborhood service approach. The preparation of the monograph was preceded by visits to a number of communities in the northeast region of the country that had operating manpower programs in neighborhoods. A number of experts were interviewed and a variety of reports and evaluations of programs were reviewed. Consequently, the monograph represents the findings and experience of a number of groups and individuals. It was concluded that the neighborhood centers appear as a feasible and effective instrument for the first contact in delivering needed manpower services. (CH)
