The primary purpose of this thesis was to review and evaluate a project conducted under the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962 in Redford, Virginia. To place the subject in proper perspective, a review of the economy with particular emphasis on employment, was necessary. It was further necessary to define clearly the types of unemployment; seasonal, cyclical, frictional, and structural, as well as underemployment and full employment. After these guidelines were established, the investigation was carried into the specific areas covered by the Act. This was accompanied by a brief description of the intent and the administration of the Act. The project itself was evaluated by first investigating the participants, students, teachers, and administrators on an individual basis. The conclusions on the project are based on the necessity of the program to that particular area and how the national program appears in the light of this project.
