The Rural Career Assistance Program: An Implementation Guide.
Ashley, William, Comp.; And Others
This guide was developed to aid workshop presenters in conducting programs for farmers who may lose or have lost their farms. It contains materials to help the farmers cope with the emotional, financial, and career loss and to plan for the future. The guide is organized in three chapters. Chapter 1 demonstrates the need for the program, defines the farmers' problems, and describes the Rural Career Assistance Program. Chapter 2 outlines the program's structure, including administration (program staffing/recruiting, reporting, curriculum, client recruitment, funding and budget issues, linkages), program planning and implementation, and public relations. The final chapter describes the client services offered in career assistance programs, suggests a program format, and provides teaching suggestions. The bulk of the guide consists of handout masters for workshop materials, intake and recruitment materials, and materials related to the emotional, career, physical, and fiscal domains. (KC)
