Youth House, Inc., Bronx, NY.
Project GET SET was designed to train and orient 300 youths held in Youth House juvenile detention center in primary vocational tasks, provide remedial education, and expose them to an innovative technique for upgrading their cultural deficiencies. The Life Skills Education concept provided the youth with (a) background information on a particular work area; (b) orientation sessions to stimulate interest and questions about a particular job; (c) a field trip to the work area with a behind-the-scenes look at both the working process and the workers involved; and (d) construction of a simulated work environment, with a reinforcement of the work orientation values by role playing the activities of those just observed.
