Somerset Community Coll, KY.
During the 1986-87 program year, the Transitional Support Services Program, a cooperatively funded project between the Job Training Partnership Act and the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, continued its services as a career development program for single parents/homemakers in Kentucky who are unemployed or underemployed. The program consisted of a 60-hour orientation to the world of work emphasizing employability skills, personal development, and career development. Personal counseling, short-term training programs, work internships, and scholarships were available to help serve individual participant needs. Upon completion of the orientation program, the participants were assisted with a job search or enrollment into General Educational Development training, vocational school, college, or other training programs. Specific recommendations for 1986-87 included active recruitment of males and minorities, allocation of additional funds for child care and travel, organization of support groups, and placing of greater emphasis on parenting skills, spouse abuse, personal money management, basic literacy, and nontraditional careers for women.
