The programs described in detail are: cooperative work study in the Syracuse Public Schools; cooperative education in New York City; office skills at Newburgh Free Academy, Kingston High School, and Patchoque-Medford High School; work experience at the Rockland Area Occupational Center, the Greece Central School District, and Northport High School in cooperation with the Veterans Administration Hospital.
