A Guide to the Operation of a Basic and Clerical Skills Program for AFCD [Aid to Families With Dependent Children] Trainees.
Associates for Research in Behavior, Inc., Philadelphia, PA. Science Center.
The guide is one of the outcomes of an experimental research and demonstration program to develop a system for training mothers on welfare in office skills leading to such positions as secretaries, clerk-typists, office machine operators, and similar jobs. The program was funded for two years (May 1, 1968--April 30, 1970) by the Social and Rehabilitation Service of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. Trainees are women on welfare (men are eligible, but none have enrolled to date) who lack job skills and, in most cases, are high school dropouts; the only admission requirement Associates' program imposes is the achievement of a score on the California Achievement Test (CAT) equivalent to that of a beginning seventh grader. The curriculum is individualized for each student with the help of programed instruction and self-instructional materials. (NTIS)
