A Review, Analysis and Documentation of Twenty Rural Manpower Programs. Final Report.
Development Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
Selected examples of successful approaches, innovations, and techniques in rural manpower programs were analyzed to provide new organizations with blueprints of workable program operations. Attention was focused on such areas as recruitment and selection, trainee orientation, economic development, job placement, on the job training, interagency cooperation, and staffing. It became clear that a successful rural manpower program must operate and use its resources as a single, integrated, self-reinforcing system; coordinate different community projects to avoid unnecessary duplication; and enlist the active support and participation of local business, industrial, and other leaders. Elements important to program success were noted, along with recommendations on program objectives and future planning and funding. (The report contains flow charts and a program index.) (LY)
