Housekeeping Careers--A New Frontier.
Bowen, Uvelia S. A.
The Household Employment Association for Reevaluation and Training (HEART) has established an agency to upgrade the status of household employment. The organizational methods and procedures the founders utilized are provided in the form of condensed minutes of the association's advisory council and board of directors. Instructions are presented for the selection and equipment of suitable facilities for a training center, illustrated by accounts of the transformation of a slum brownstone into the association's training center. An overview is given of the association's comprehensive training program. Outlines are provided for use in preparing proposals requesting funds, operating in-staff training sessions, and developing operational tools such as training manuals. Now licensed as a private trade school, the HEART facility is also being utilized as a national training center for those interested in developing similar programs, and information is offered on this function of the association. The project director's report of a feasibility study and an outline of the study's design are included as models, with ten pages of forms used in the study. (AJ)
