This document is the final report of the first year's operation of a project designed to train literacy and adult education providers and organizations in business, industry, and labor to develop and implement effective workplace literacy programs. The program, which operates in Pennsylvania on the state and regional levels, initiates the establishment of partnerships between providers and organizations for collaborative efforts in the assessment of workplace literacy needs, the design of job-specific basic skills instruction, and the implementation of appropriate workplace literacy programs. The first nine pages of the document consist of an abstract that reports the program's first-year accomplishments (including the training of four consultants to conduct regional workplace literacy workshops and to provide one-to-one mentoring upon request); an introduction; a statement of the workplace literacy problem; a list of first-year goals and objectives; a procedures section; and recommendations for future projects. The remainder of the document is an appendix containing a brochure; workplace literacy workshop materials; an 11-item resource list; logs and evaluation forms; and summaries of project workshop evaluations.
