This report of entry level training in the better known community programs for the hardcore unemployed covers prevocational, on the job, and skill training. Many of the programs are financed in part, or in full, under the Manpower Development and Training Act; others, such as the Detroit Skill Center, depend on several governmental sources for funding. Private enterprise supplies the money for programs operated by Caterpillar Tractor, International Business Machines, McDonnell-Douglas Corporation, the Urban League's Skills Level Improvement Project, and Xerox Corporation's Project Step-Up. The report for each training project covers purpose, target groups, recruitment, curriculum, job skills, length of training, percentage of completion, percentage employed, and costs. Each report includes the name, address, and telephone number of the official in charge of the program. (pt)
