de Leon, Fred, Jr.
This seven-part report describes the objectives and outcomes of the Supportive Services for Women Program (SSWP) which operated at Oxnard College between October 1980 and June 1981. After Part I provides introductory material on the need for and genesis of the program, Part II outlines the SSWP's dual goals: to meet the vocational training needs of poverty-level, female heads of households in Ventura County and to simultaneously rectify the gender imbalances within six program areas: agricultural mechanics, industrial maintenance mechanics, diesel mechanics, auto mechanics, truck driving, and landscape maintenance. Part III reviews the specific program objectives corresponding to these goals. Part IV describes the SSWP's design with respect to staff and activities in the areas of recruitment and retention. Part V focuses on the counseling and support services in which the SSWP staff members were involved, while Part VI examines program outcomes with respect to increases in the enrollment of women from Fall 1980 to Spring 1981 for each of the targeted program areas. Finally, Part VII outlines five recommendations for enhancing the success of specialized programs such as the SSWP. (JP)
