Abstract:
The influence of background characteristics on dropouts from a Job Corps Center was investigated using a Biographical Information Blank. Successful and unsuccessful male and female volunteer Corpsmembers were compared and the data analyzed by univariate and multivariate statistical techniques. Results strongly support the prediction that biographical characteristics are important in determining Corpsmember failure in the program. It was also found that the nature of family and peer relationships; previous social adjustment and structured activity and factors related to ethnicity and cultural attitudes are influential. There are also indications that potential dropouts may be affected in a positive manner to complete their training.
