The College for Human Services

by Audrey C. Cohen - 1968

Much has been written about "careers for the poor" and the training of para-professionals; but little attention has been paid to the special problems of mature women from ghetto areas. The Women's Talent Corps has been successfully conducting career-training institutes since 1966 and placing women (some of them off relief rolls) in diverse pre-professional jobs. The author tells the history of this dramatic effort to educate for community service, an effort about to culminate in the establishment of a "pilot" two-year College for Human Services which will offer advanced training to mature and capable students who happen to be poor.
