A literacy/basic skills training project, revised to allow for the realities of the economic recession in New England, successfully trained 590 employees and 364 unemployed men and women. Revised positive outcomes included employment in companies outside the eight original companies in the project, enrollment in higher-level education and skills training programs to enhance employability, and one grade level advance in either mathematics or reading. Training was conducted on site and in a training center. Five 12-week training cycles at the center produced successful outcomes for 78 percent of the unemployed graduates. Of those who dropped out of the program before completion, almost half left for a job or for training. Onsite training at the eight businesses had a 99 percent success rate. One of the project's most significant outcomes was expansion of collaborative relationships among state, community, and voluntary agencies. (Project documents, including evaluation forms, publicity articles and brochures, and case management follow-up forms, are included in the report.) (KC)
