The work activity center (WAC) has been severely criticized in recent times for its inability to provide clients with an adequate work component. The focus of this criticism is on the lack of quality and remunerative subcontracts and the inability of WAC to combine production and training to satisfactorily meet the developmental needs of the clients. This paper is an attempt to address these problems by proposing a new model which can be utilized by WAC. The model is based on the job module which is a work task utilized in training, curriculum development, and subcontract procurement. The goals of the model include the development of (a) a competent workforce, (b) a contract procurement, and (c) a training curriculum.
