Located in a low income model cities area of Cheyenne, Wyoming, the project provided adult basic education and vocational counseling services. The document offers a detailed summary of its staff and their qualifications, the agenda of a staff workshop, and a summary of the center's recruitment activities and problems. A brief description of the center's programs include its instructional activities in reading, social studies/science, math, and language and programs of employment orientation, English as a second language, and consumer education. A case study illustrating the student counseling program and procedure is presented with the individualized educational program developed to meet the specific needs of the case. The counseling program was aimed at enhancing the educational environment, and counselors' activities included recruitment of students, testing, program evaluation, and some teaching.
