Project Director: Man On A Tight Rope.
Project H.E.L.P. is a promise to youth that we do care and that we will show we do. However, in innovating a program for dropouts, many concerns arise, as more difficulties arise. These areas of concern are: (1) the widespread adoption of the innovation which could take place only with the backing and support of the school board and administrative hierarchy, (2) the harmonizing of Project H.E.L.P. with the school board, the administrative hierarchy, the teaching staff, the counselors, the para-professional volunteers, students to be helped, the consultants, and also with the needs of professionals outside the project; and (3) handling the crisis that often arises regarding loyalty to the school and honesty toward the Project and toward the potential dropout. Specific individual problems are discussed and solutions explained. The project director must try to intervene, direct, and encourage all concerned to understand what events are really taking place and must attempt to find ways of coping with them. (KJ)
