OEO Programs for Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers.
Educational Systems Corp., Washington, DC.
Programs sponsored by the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity for unskilled, under-educated migrant and seasonal farm workers are summarized. It is emphasized that these programs have their major thrust in preparing breadwinners for upgraded jobs and in preparing entire farm worker families for adjustment to the way of life that new jobs will bring. Projects outlined emphasize basic literacy skills, pre-vocational training, family rehabilitation, day care, and housing programs. Unique approaches devised by individuals and agencies to meet the problems of rapid job displacement and poverty of the farm worker are briefly described. A summary provides information on funding level, grantee description, areas served, and a brief statement of each project's activities. Listings are by states, cities, and current and past programs.
