Second Annual Report and Evaluation of the Talent Corps/College for Human Services. 1967-68 Program.
Walton, Barbara J.
The Talent Corps/College for Human Services is an action oriented training institute and college established in 1964 to train persons from the low income areas of New York City for paraprofessional careers in community agencies such as schools, hospitals, social service organizations, and related service agencies. Aside from training, its mandate includes creating new positions in the training agency, so that those who complete 30 to 36 week work-study programs can be placed immediately in a permanent job in the helping professions. The major accomplishments of 1968 were: (1) career opportunities in new fields were opened to paraprofessionals; (2) formal application was made to the City of New York for a charter granting the college authority to grant degrees; (3) a core curriculum in the human services was developed, refined, and tested; and (4) the Talent Corps extended and expanded its relationships with community agencies. Further sections of the report elaborate on the students' backgrounds, the curriculum, field training, faculty role, and evaluation of student growth and performance. (DM)
