Boucher, Wayne I.; DeGroodt, Diane H.
This report profiles 36 successful programs undertaken by businesses outside Arkansas to help at-risk students (particularly minorities) in high school or the early years of college to acquire life skills. Published descriptions of hundreds of programs were reviewed, from which 36 were selected for inclusion in this report. These programs are grouped into five categories: (1) programs concerned with changing behavior or attitudes, such as giving up drugs; (2) programs concerned with parenting skills and prenatal care for teenagers; (3) programs concerned with skills useful in preparing for a career and finding and holding a job; (4) programs concerned with convincing students that going to college is a genuine possibility; and (5) programs concerned with specific life skills, such as economic awareness. The program profiles list contact persons with telephone numbers. The report also contains a list of contacts and an annotated bibliography listing 16 references. (KC)
