Abstract: Since its establishment in the early 1970s, 70001 Training and Employment Institute has helped more than 60,000 student dropouts complete their education and find a job. The 70001 program encompasses job readiness training, education upgrading, job placement assistance, motivational activities, and follow-up services. The programs, totaling more than 70 in 23 States, are administered by local colleges, universities, and community organizations. 70001 is currently designing a dropout prevention program to provide support to at-risk students. The program will cover life management skills, career exploration, and employability training. Both the dropout recovery and prevention programs emphasize improving student self-esteem and confidence through skill mastery and frequent positive reinforcement. 11 references
