Bilingual Bicultural Delivery of Human Services to Elderly Franco-Americans through Vocational Education. Final Report.
Maine Univ., Portland-Gorham.; Maine Univ., Presque Isle.; Maine Univ., Orono. Bangor Community Coll.
This project was an attempt to provide bilingual vocational education to elderly Franco-Americans on a cooperative basis among three Maine universities. Seventy-seven adult unemployed or underemployed Franco-Americans participated in a human services worker training program based on the Bangor-based certificate level curriculum in gerontology. Part 1 of the report is a compilation of programmatic and administrative information concerning recruitment, curriculum, support services, objectives, and administration. Part 2 is an independent evaluation of the project which consisted of onsite visits and surveys of faculty, staff, students, and practicum supervisors. Data from onsite visits are summarized and presented according to the role of bilingualism, effects of bicultural emphasis, adequacy of human services training, practicum placements, students, faculty, staff, consortium approach, and the one-year certificate. The surveys included questions on most of the same topics addressed by the onsite visit evaluation. Survey responses, received from approximately one-half of each group, indicated high levels of satisfaction among all groups. Sample instruments are included. (NJ)
