Competencies for Self-Employment: Entrepreneurial Training for Ex-Offenders. Trainer's Handbook. Phase I.
Springfield Urban League, Inc., IL.
This handbook is intended to help trainers develop competencies for self-employment in ex-criminal offenders. The materials are presented in 11 sections. The first section provides a rationale for entrepreneurial training for ex-offenders and suggests teaching principles and methodologies. The next section describes recruitment, screening, and selection procedures. The core of the guide is section 3, which describes the curriculum itself--a 12-week program designed for 8-15 participants with 2 facilitators and consisting of 21 sessions ranging in length from 2.5 to 3 hours each. This section, by far the longest in the guide, contains materials for all 21 training sessions, including handouts, questionnaires, personal evaluation sheets, worksheets, career information, learning activities, and success stories. Finally, sections 4 through 11 of the guide contain a business plan workbook, joys and pitfalls of the program, footnotes, a bibliography of seven classroom materials, and order forms for Small Business Administration pamphlets, booklets, and other free materials.
