Directory of Special Programs for Minority Group Members: Career Information Services, Employment Skill Banks, Financial Aid Sources. Second Edition, With an Additional Section on Employment Assistance Services for Women.
Johnson, Willis L., Ed.
Although planned as a comprehensive listing of special programs for minority group members several decisions were made which significantly expanded its scope, and hopefully, makes it even more useful to candidates, counselors, and employers. A number of programs for "disadvantaged" persons were included. Some general programs, open to all persons, but of special help to minority group members concerned with upward mobility, are included -- especially, special information and career guidance projects; the original objective was to limit the Directory to programs at the professional level or which required college training. While most of the entries are at this level, some additional opportunities were reported and these were included. Finally, so many excellent programs assisting women with career information and job placement were discovered that a special section was added to present them. Minority group members, as used in this Directory, refers to persons who would describe themselves as black or Afro-American, Spanish speaking, Spanish surnamed, or of Latin American origin or culture; American Indian; Alaskan native; or Asian American or Oriental. Most of the programs require U.S. citizenship. Where they are already over represented, not all minority programs include Asian Americans. (Author/JM)
