Project COMMUNI-LINK: Multi-State Project to Develop Coordinative Rural Community Basic Education Programming. (Second Year Report) September 16, 1971-June 30, 1972.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Education.
The report covered the operation of Project Communi-Link (PC-L) during its second year of activity, September 16-June 30, 1972. The fundamental purpose of PC-L was to assist selected rural communities to improve the social and economic well-being of rural adults through expanded, more comprehensive basic educational opportunities and related programs, and to more effectively mobilize and utilize existing and potential community resources when identifying and fulfilling complex adult needs and wants. Effort was also initiaged in several states toward the ultimate goal of a state-level interorganizational linkage system which could provide an integrated response and delivery system to community integrative programming actions in pilot areas and throughout the state. Four means for achieving this were given, such as the continuing provision for consultative services by Colorado State University Project Community Services Coordinators. Essential outcomes for the second year of PC-L operation were assessed on a community-by-community basis in 26 communities and 14 states. General conclusions drawn from the first 2 years of project operations revealed that the rationale, design, and basic operations were effective. (FF)
