Harrison, Bennett; And Others
Based on interviews with Community Development Corporation (CDC) personnel from many organizations conducted at 10 sites throughout the country, this report presents an overview of CDCs and employment training, supported by detailed case studies. The report is organized in six chapters on the following topics: employment training and the changing labor force, networks and community development, opportunities, frustrations, prospects for employment training, and building bridges between community development and employment training. Nineteen case studies are used to illustrate CDCs in action and to suggest ways that CDCs can best provide employment training within the existing structures in communities. The report includes a glossary of 46 acronyms used in the field of community development and employment training. (KC)
