McCreary, Phyllis Groom; McCreary, John M.
The document was written for those who are planning new manpower services for offenders and ex-offenders or who are administering or employed in various institutional or community-based programs that prepare them to find jobs and acquire skills to raise their income. Part 1 establishes a framework for the guidelines presented in the rest of the volume and describes the role of manpower services, economic problems and job needs of offenders, and the development of institutional and community activities to help the offender establish himself in a lawful occupation. Part 2 offers information on how to (1) help an individual prepare himself for a job, (2) develop jobs, (3) see that former offenders are properly placed, and (4) create a stable relationship between the employer and the employee. Part 3 details program planning, administration, and evaluation. A final part briefly summarizes the elements of a model manpower services program. Appended are: samples of orientation material, an employment interview guide, job application forms, sample program planning charts, sample determination of staff requirements, and a criteria and rating scale for hiring ex-offenders. Also included is a 69-item selected bibliography. (Author/MS)
