Youth Employment Training Program Development Manual for the Special Needs Student.
Mesa Community Coll., AZ.
This Youth Employment Training program manual is one of three documents developed in a community college project to meet the career and vocational needs of disadvantaged handicapped youth (mainly the learning disabled, the educable mentally handicapped, and the emotionally handicapped). The project, aimed at assisting them to gain and retain full-time, non-subsidized employment, consisted of developing and field testing a course curriculum, methods for the identification and recruitment of handicapped students, and career and vocational advising and counseling procedures with the handicapped. The program manual presents the overall goal of the project and its four primary objectives, provides a history of the project, and includes the needs survey which led to its development. Unique aspects of the project are presented along with their interrelationship. A flow chart is provided to help the reader to understand this interrelationship and the process a student would follow in the program. The dissemination process to be followed by the project is outlined and described along with a second flow chart designed to graphically depict the process. The manual also contains two sample high school districts' plans for the dissemination of the project. Finally, the manual provides the "physical demands and working conditions" form, a tool that was found helpful during field testing of the project. (The curriculum guide and resource book are available separately--see note.) (KC)
