Miami-Dade Junior Coll., FL.
Career College (originally known as Cooperative Education Program for Dropouts was set up under the auspices of Title I of the Higher Education Act. The grant for the pilot project specified a two-thirds federal contribution and a one-third contribution from the South Campus of Miami-Dade Junior College. Program objectives included identifying 60 young male school dropouts and enrolling them in a program of full-time study alternated with full-time work. Counseling services, developmental activities, cooperative work experiences, and relevant learning experiences were provided to encourage ghetto youths, who left school early, to pursue their interests and improve their academic and vocational skills. This report of Career College's first year of operation describes some of the problems and difficulties encountered by the staff in setting up the program. (BB)
