Designed as a resource for rural 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 rural Americans. The following topics are addressed in the guide: key linkage strategies (community advisory councils, cooperative agreements with human services agencies, and cooperative agreements with private industry); rural marketing strategies; rural delivery systems; and rural 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 program directors, a sample agenda, and an outline of the contributions of cooperating parties (educational agencies, industry, and unions).
