THE BOLD NEW VENTURE PLUS TWO YEARS.
THE BOYS WHO HAD UNDERGONE THE VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM IN MERCER COUNTY WERE FOLLOWED UP. LACK OF READING ABILITY AT GRADE LEVEL CASUED MOST DROPOUTS. A PROGRAM OF PRACTICAL JOB PREPARATION ON THE BASIS OF INTEREST WAS PROVIDED, AND THE PLAN WAS QUITE SUCCESSFUL. A FACTOR WHICH LED TO SOME UNEMPLOYMENT AFTER TRAINING WAS THAT SOME OF THE BOYS WERE NOT YET 18 AND THEREFORE NOT OLD ENOUGH TO WORK. MANY DID NOT RECEIVE HOME ENCOURAGEMENT AFTER TRAINING, AND SOME DID NOT SEEK EMPLOYMENT.
