A section on national entrepreneurship training programs and organizations presents 22 such organizations. The section on policy, advocacy, and information organizations contains 25 entries. Model programs in Appalachia are presented in a section containing 28 entries for Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Thirty-five sample programs for the rest of the United States are covered in the following section. In each of these sections, contact information and an abstract of activities are given for each organization, usually accompanied by focus, geographic area, age levels served, products and services, and key partners. Programs serve elementary, secondary, undergraduate, postgraduate, and adult educational levels. Some programs target students with disabilities, minority groups, women, or adjudicated youth.
