122 p. 

The National Women's Employment and Education project (NWEE), sponsored by the Women's Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor, was a fast-paced effort designed to serve 20 women each month, 240 each year. The training concept was quite different from traditional programs in that NWEE's thrust was to move women quickly into jobs. The program focused on employment readiness skills or referral to skills training. The target population served by NWEE was composed primarily of Hispanic female heads of families receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children. The program identified specific job opportunities, recruited women interested in those jobs, prepared the women for the jobs, helped place the women, and provided follow-up and support services for a full year after the initial training program. The program thus included five major components that are described in this guide: job development, outreach, employment readiness training, job placement, and follow-up services. A section on program management, with attention to staffing, recordkeeping, and evaluation, is also included. The NWEE project is described as an example that others can use in designing and implementing similar projects. A large part of the document consists of appendixes that contain materials needed to develop such a project. Materials include the following: forms used to implement/evaluate the NWEE project, sample skills discovery exercise, employment readiness class schedules, and a curriculum guide for an employment readiness training class.
