New Careers: Making Post-Secondary Education More Accessible to New Careerists. Report of a One-Day Working Conference (November 12, 1968).
Mobilization for Youth, Inc., New York, NY.
The purpose of the one-day working conference, held November 12, 1968, was to examine constructively the ways in which the present educational systems must change, the strategies for change already underway, specific steps that can be taken, and by whom, to make health careers more available to the poor. The accessibility of post-secondary education was singled out because virtually all human services career advancement demands it. The single day's discussion focused on health occupations as a prototype for human service careers. The conference was made up of persons who could be instrumental in effecting institutional changes to help new careerists. Social Health Technicians and their employees were also represented.
