Community Education-Work Councils: The AACJC Project Second Year Report.
American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
This report focuses on the second year of the education-to-work councils established by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges in six communities across the country. The development of the programs is described in terms of the following process: (1) current data relevant to school-to-work transition issues were collected; (2) primary goals and objectives were determined; (3) task groups were organized and given responsibility to devise action programs; (4) task group programs were adopted by the Council; (5) programs were implemented using Council members as resource people; and (6) efforts were made to inform the community of the Council's purposes and achievements. Recommendations for achieving program goals are presented, as are discussions and recommendations in the following areas: the Youth Employment and Demonstration Programs Act (YEDPA); funding uncertainties; community colleges as initiators; volunteerism; council life cycles; national intermediaries; budget; state and local Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA); the project's third year; and assessment. The demography, council activities and problems, budget summary, institutional impact, documents, plans for the future, and assessment of the individual programs are presented for each of the six locations: Bayamon, Puerto Rico; Enfield, Connecticut; Fairbanks, Alaska; Lincoln, Nebraska; St. Albans, Vermont; and Tullahoma, Tennessee.
