Community Building Services Training Program: A Model Training Program to Provide Technical Training for Minority Adults in Construction, Building Maintenance,and Property Management. Final Report.
Community Building Maintenance Corp., Chicago, IL.
A demonstration program, administered by a community based building maintenance, management, and construction corporation, was developed to provide technical training for minority adults in construction, building maintenance, and property management in the Chicago area. The program was concerned with seeking solutions to the lack of housing, job training, and job opportunities in large metropolitan depressed areas and with demonstrating how occupational opportunities for inner-city residents could be improved while their neighborhoods would simultaneously be rebuilt. The report describes the recruitment of trainees, pre-skill training, pre-apprentice skill familiarity practice, on-site training, and trainee evaluation procedures for the program which was designed to accommodate 26-43 participants at any given time. Six goals and specific objectives for attaining them are stated. A Concluding section discusses accomplishments of the relatively successful program in comparison to its goals, program improvements based on experience, and need for continuation. (NTIS)
