The Role of the Counselor in Public Service Employment: The Vermont Experience. Final Report.
The ensuing report is a counselor's first hand account of her experience with Vermont's Manpower Pilot Project on Public Service Employment. This statewide project was designed to test temporary subsidized employment in nonprofit agencies for low income clients. The report describes and refers to many case studies, specifically those who entered the program because they were liable for the support of children and also had no or low income. Although the program originally was committed toward helping "hard-core unemployables," emphasis was shifted to those who evidenced fewer, less severe barriers to employment. Clients were placed in subsidized employment for 6 months, with the exceptation that their work experience would lead to permanent, nonsubsidized employment. The counselor devoted her energies to help the client overcome his major barriers to employment, such as: transportation, child care, and job attitude. (Also included are 11 appendixes and a two-item bibliography.) (Author)
