Migrant Action Program. Annual Report, 1972.
Migrant Action Program, Mason City, IA.
The philosophy behind and the operations of the Iowa Migrant Action Program (MAP) are discussed in this 1972 annual report. In developing its programs, MAP emphasizes self-determination as a key factor in redirecting the migrant to a life style different from the one he has known. MAP's various projects are intended to economically upgrade the migrant seasonal farmworkers. In its manpower component, MAP offers such programs as Settlement, On-the-Job Training, Vocational Training, Adult Basic Education, and Direct Job Placement. Included in its migrant children's programs are 4 child development centers which MAP operates to aid the migrant child in developing self-identity, personal worth, and self-expression. MAP provides, in its health component, family clinics, emergency care, immunization programs, dental screening and follow-up care, health education programs, and physicals for children attending migrant summer schools. MAP has received funds from the American Freedom from Hunger Foundation to provide emergency housing loans to migrant seasonal farmworkers settling in communities in Iowa, from the National Drug Center to deal with the drug abuse problem among migrant workers, and from the North Iowa Library Extension. Complete funding data is included in this annual report along with a listing of MAP's board of directors, full-time staff, and part-time staff. (NQ)
