The Role of the Coach in Public Service Employment: The Vermont Experience. Final Report.
This report describes on a first-hand basis the role played by the "coach" in the Vermont Experimental and Demonstration Manpower Pilot Project. The paraprofessional coach, or "employment service aide," acts as a client advocate who helps the client adjust to a work environment. As one part of a three member employability team, the coach's duties begin after the client has been accepted for placement in a Special Work training situation. Constant communication is maintained until the client's barriers to employability are overcome. Responsibilities of the coach vary from acquainting the program enrollee with simulated interviews, to helping resolve family friction which may hinder the individual's effectiveness. Described here is a case study of one man who was helped to overcome physical and emotional handicaps so he might qualify for a desired job. A day-by-day narration chronicles the coach's experience with this unique situation. (Also included is a one-item bibliography.) (Author)
