Adult Education Access Project.
Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit, Edinboro, PA.
A project was conducted to improve access to adult education for clients of Pennsylvania's Erie Family Center. The project's primary objectives were as follows: include adult education services in the referral services provided to family center clients; expedite students' referral to adult education services; provide career counseling to individuals; and provide a library of materials for career counseling at the family center and a procedure for utilizing the materials. A model career exploration experience designed to provide learners with the tools to enter training, obtain a job, or identify barriers to employment was developed and implemented with nine adults, and a multiagency program for women that focused on information needed to achieve self-sufficiency/self-preservation was developed and offered to 10 women (8 of whom completed the program). (Appendixes constituting approximately 75% of this document contain the following: family center checklist; family center enrollment; family center needs assessment; flyers for Career Exploration Workshop to determine client needs; programs of Erie County flyer; table of contents for postsecondary schools; employability and career training guide; list of materials reviewed; recruitment materials; and request for additional tutors to continue the program. Also included is a manual for training mentors.) (MN)
