Working with Business and Industry.
Stempel, Ellen F.
This publication contains guidelines for fostering cooperation between the business and professional community and a community adult learning center. It is based on a program in operation at the Great Neck (New York) Adult Learning Center. The guidelines for initiating and conducting the program cover the following processes: selection of the business and industry liaison; initial planning; getting leads; the initial contact; securing commitments and following up; and recording, reporting and evaluating the cooperative program. The program guidelines stress the mutual benefits of such a plan in two ways. For the adult center, job information and development services will attract more students to the center, helping to maintain attendance in classes and increase motivation toward achievement of the educational credentials and skills necessary to get, hold, and advance in a good job. For the business community, access to reliable workers and favorable public relations may increase business volume. A section on resource materials completes the guide. (KC)
