Designed as a resource for urban adult basic education (ABE) program planners, this guidebook describes model linkage strategies between ABE and job placement as well as ABE and job training services that are targeted to urban Americans. The following topics are covered in the guide: linkage strategies (the meaning of the term linkages, community advisory councils, cooperative agreements with human service agencies, and cooperative agreements with private industry); urban marketing strategies (urban marketing problems, target populations, means for reaching target populations, and other successful marketing strategies); urban delivery strategies (outreach classes and other successful marketing strategies) and urban supportive services. Appended to the guide are guidelines for officer selection, sample council by-laws, suggested training activities, a list of do's and do not's for an effective council, a survey to determine the services provided and the clients served by agencies, sample cooperative agreements, lists of the qualifications and responsibilities of a program director, a sample agenda, and an outline of the contributions of cooperating parties (educational agencies, industry, and unions).
