The Alpine Project (A Test of Three Techniques for Assisting Chronically Unemployable Older Workers). Final Report.
Jewish Vocational Service, Chicago, IL.
The project was designed to test the feasibility of a variety of service techniques to assist chronically unemployed older workers in obtaining employment. Individuals between the ages of 45-65 who were unemployed for at least 15 months were eligible for the project. The clients were assigned to three basic groupings: (1) a rehabilitation workshop for evaluation, work adjustment, group counseling and job referral, and placement; (2) a prevocational training and group counseling program with job-hunting and subsequent referral and placement services; and (3) a vocational counseling program with immediate referral and placement service.
