National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
This publication provides business with a detailed guide for becoming involved in one important option for business/education partnerships: school-to-work transition programs, or Jobs Collaboratives. A rationale is offered for business to join a collaborative effort as a first step to understanding schools and as a basis for more systemic change. The successful elements of a model Jobs Collaborative program are detailed, including the steps needed to develop and sustain the process. Specific profiles of successful Jobs Collaborative programs currently operating in Boston, Louisville, and Portland (Oregon) are highlighted. The publication also identifies key planning issues that must be addressed in designing this partnership effort. Finally, individual and shared roles and responsibilities of business, education, and the intermediary organization are each described and carefully delineated in a graphic model. A 13-item reference/resource list is attached. (YLB)
