1Title:  Jewish Vocational Service Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Jewish Vocational Service 
 Dates:  1927-1992 
 Abstract:  The Jewish Vocational Service (Cleveland, Ohio) was founded in 1939 as the result of a joint recommendation of the Jewish Social Service Bureau and the Council Educational Alliance for an agency which would provide vocational guidance and employment service to Cleveland's Jewish community. Particular attention was given to providing services for recently arrived refugees from Nazi Germany. During and after World War II, the agency assisted veterans and other refugees to locate employment. As a result of the civil rights movement of the 1950s-1960s and anti-discrimination legislation, the need for job placement shrank, and the agency then focused attention on programs in career counseling, job seeking, and the needs of recently arrived Jewish immigrants from what was then the Soviet Union. The collection consists of board of trustees minutes, agency statistical reports and summaries, descriptive profiles of the agency, files concerning programs sponsored by the agency, and papers present by staff.
