Alternativas. A Bilingual Vocational Model Program and Curriculum.
Elgin Community Coll., IL.
This guide is intended for use in conducting a 2-week, 30-hour career awareness and job readiness workshop for limited-English proficient, Spanish-speaking displaced homemakers and single parents. The workshop includes bilingual instructional materials dealing with the following topics: identifying interests and skills, setting goals, understanding the labor market, entering the labor market, completing job applications and writing resumes, taking a job interview, and planning a course of study and a career. The first part of the program guide describes the materials included in the workshop curriculum manual; discusses the qualifications needed by workshop facilitators; and outlines procedures for publicizing the workshop, determining program eligibility, organizing necessary supportive services (including transportation and child care), presenting the workshop, organizing individual planning sessions to be held after the workshop, making referrals, helping workshop participants begin training or find a job, and conducting workshop follow-up activities. The first five sessions outlined in the curriculum guide are intended to help participants improve their self-esteem, and the second five sessions cover techniques for finding jobs and/or educational and training opportunities. Each session outline contains a goal, objectives, activities and procedures for implementing them, instructor guidelines, and related bilingual instructional materials (including sample forms and handouts). (A project report is included with the program guide.) (MN)
