The Residential Career Education Concept: The Mountain-Plains Program. An Overview.
Mountain-Plains Education and Economic Development Program, Inc., Glasgow AFB, MT.
The objective of the Mountain-Plains Education and Economic Development Program, (MPEEDP), is to develop through action research and experimentation, integrated career education methods and programs which can be implemented on a widespread basis. This experimental demonstration activity involved various individuals, agencies, and other resources in preparing adults and children of rural unemployed and underemployed families in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska for rewarding employment. The private non-profit corporation, MPEEDP, with its core management team located at Glasgow Air Base in Montana, will develop a comprehensive research design from the initial selection of participants through job placement and followup, and will train the staff for each state. Program goals, objectives, and philosophy are detailed. Various reports and conferences on new methods will document the progress of this career education model. (AG)
