Training Programs for Nontraditional Jobs for Older Adults. Final Report.
Branscum, Shelba Y.
A project proposed to organize and teach a series of training programs on nontraditional jobs for adults over age 55. Nontraditional was defined as any work situation other than full-time, historically-typical jobs in a community. Project staff developed four training classes in small appliance repair, plant care, mother's care, food preparation and three workshops in eldersitting, house sitting, and demonstration techniques. Eighteen different non-fee sessions were offered between October 1981 and May 1982. Of the 113 people enrolled in the sessions, 51 were placed into or found jobs relating to the training programs. (Appendixes include a project procedure outline, course objectives with outlines for training courses, and topic outlines for the workshops.) (YLB)
