It is my hypothesis formulated after carefully researching this area, that while the Federal government is able to spend millions of dollars in tax money and to initiated large scale training programs, their programs are far less effective and yet much more expensive to run than the local· programs managed by people from the neighborhoods where the underprivileged and unfortunate live. They comprehend intimately, and without having to rely blindly on research surveys and statistical averages, the needs and drives of those whom it is meant to serve, the juvenile delinquent or the discourage, middle-aged man out~of-work. Since black people are usually in the majority in these two categories, my main concern has been meeting and solving the problems of poverty and poor work attitudes combined with those of being black.
