Falk, R. F.; And Others
This research report is concerned with paraprofessional training, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for poverty adults. The following questions represent the objectives and purposes of the research effort: enrollees' mobility orientations, and how these orientations have changed; how the role sets of enrollees influence their effectiveness in social service agencies; the extent to which enrollees change their self conceptions; job interests and satisfactions of careerists; the effect of higher education on poverty adults; and differences between enrollees who drop out and stay in the program. Applied interpretations and implications of the research are presented in this report. (The document includes one chapter bibliography and 94 tables.) (Author/LY)
