Summary

The project, a voluntary program, funded under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, was designed to aid in the educational and occupational adjustment of young people, 16 through 20 years of age, who have left school, or who are potential dropouts. The rationale of the program requires that the trainee's goals come first, not pre-ordained superimposed goals from the project. The dropout volumtarily applies for acceptance in the project and is interviewed by the teacher/coordinator. If the prospective trainee's goal is in the broad areas of employment, further training, or a return to regular school, he is informed what assistance the project can offer him. If the young person asks to be enrolled and is accepted, he and the coordinator decide which components of the Job Upgrading curriculum will best help him achieve his goals, which then become the project objectives for this particular trainee. There are fifteen centers in various high schools located throughout Detroit. (Author/JM)
