Project BUILD, A Manpower Demonstration Program: February, 1968--March, 1969.
MacKenzie, John R.; MacKenzie, Helen R.
This demonstration project was designed to prepare disadvantaged youth from the inner city to meet the requirements for, and perform effectively in, the apprenticeable construction trades in the District of Columbia. Of 160 trainees who were prepared for apprenticeship in two 24-week cycles, there were 143 graduates, of whom 120 were placed in apprenticeship. The report emphasizes the need for a comprehensive program of remedial education, work orientation, and skill training to prepare the individual for apprenticeship. Individual counseling and careful followup are also considered to be of major importance. (BH)
