Summary

Based on a project carried out by the Women's Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor, this program guide provides a plan for helping women gain entrance into nontraditional industries. The guide uses as background and examples in the planning process the coal employment project that began in 1977 to make intensive efforts to help women get jobs in the coal mines of Appalachia. The 12 steps of the planning and implementation process are discussed in individual sections of the guide: (1) assess the need for a program and document the facts; (2) develop media strategies; (3) structure the organization and develop the program framework; (4) develop a proposal and seek funding; (5) establish an advocacy position; (6) develop support networks; (7) design training components; (8) develop and collect training materials; (9) recruit and screen applicants; (10) conduct the training; (11) assist in finding jobs; and (12) provide ongoing support. Appendixes to the guide provide: suggestions for developing a nonsexist training program, a contents outline of the coal mine project training manual, information on local mines (form), checklist of suggestions for making job application at coal mines, and a job application form.
