Based upon interviews in a number of community-based organizations in several states, this report describes community-based organizations from several perspectives. The report begins with a discussion of the origins of community-based organizations. This historical perspective sets the background for a discussion of the nature of community-based organizations from the viewpoint of those professionals involved in them. Community-based organizations are then examined pursuant to the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act Manpower Policy. Barriers and facilitators to coordination both among community-based organizations and between community-based organizations and vocational education are identified and described. The last part of the report describes the unique capabilities of community-based organizations and of vocational education to serve people preparing for the world of work. Suggestions are then offered for improving the coordination between community-based organizations and vocational education. (LRA)
