Community Based Model for Training Ex-Offenders in Entrepreneurial Competencies, Phase II. Final Report.
Springfield Urban League, Inc., IL.
An Urban League project in Springfield, Illinois, provided instruction in small business management to persons who had been convicted of a crime. Phase II of the project required designing a self-instructional workbook and tape to be used when classes were not available. A resource guide listing agencies providing assistance to business persons was also developed for use in classroom training or for self-instruction. Phase II involved evaluation of Phase I activities, recruitment, selection of participants, modification of curriculum design, research and selection of resources, use of an advisory council, and program critiques and evaluations. (Included in this packet are the Phase II project report, the resource listing, contacts and referral sources, sample letters used for recruiting, participation criteria, intake application, selection evaluation form, applicant questionnaires used to determine applicants' interests and qualifications, and publicity examples.)
