A Guide for Utilizing Volunteer Technical Assistance by a National Alliance of Businessmen (NAB) Metro.
Human Interaction Research Inst., Los Angeles, CA.
To improve the JOBS program of the National Alliance of Businessmen Metros, a feasibility study was conducted in which existing technical assistance programs were examined, problems analyzed, and recommendations formulated. The study resulted in the "Guide" to be used in promoting effective company training programs for disadvantaged people. It outlines ways in which a link may be established bewteen companies needing assistance by a group of volunteer people who have experience in one or more components of the JOBS Program. The volunteers' time devoted to technical assistance ordinarily would be contributed to NAB by their employers. The Metro office would coordinate the activities of volunteers with the needs of requesting companies. The "Guide" explains what technical assistance is, how it works, what it can and cannot do. Suggestions for determining whether or not a Metro should provide a technical assistance program and for organizing and implementing a program are detailed. The "Guide" should be viewed as a companion to "Productive Employment of the Disadvantaged: Guidelines for Action," available as ED 080 693. (AG)
