Child Care Worker Training Project. Operational Phase and Employment. Final Report.
Child Welfare League of America, Inc., New York, NY.
The responsibility of the Child Care Worker Training Project was to train 500 unemployed people from five cities in an experimental and demonstration project designed to overcome the shortage of child care personnel. Each of the centers (Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Newark and New York) developed its own method of recruitment, short-term pre-employment training and job placement. The major objective of the overall project was to provide more and better care for children in need of child welfare services while at the same time opening new career opportunities for previously unemployed or underemployed persons. The plan itself, how it evolved, who participated, the sequence of events, what problems and successes were encountered, project results and implications for the future are described. (Author/WY)
