PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH DEVELOPING A REALISTIC EMPLOYMENT COUNSELING PROGRAM FOR DISADVANTAGED URBAN YOUTH.
JONES, ROY J.; TERRELL, DAVID L
A YOUTH EMPLOYMENT COUNSELING CENTER WAS ESTABLISHED TO PROVIDE A TENTATIVE WORKING MODEL FOR THE SETTING UP OF NEW YOUTH EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMS. MANY OF THE SOCIALLY DISADVANTAGED YOUTHS (AGES 16 TO 18) SERVED BY THE CENTER HAD POLICE RECORDS. THE CENTER'S COUNSELING STAFF WAS RECRUITED FROM MANY DISCIPLINES AND DEALT ONLY WITH THE PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE YOUTHS' EMPLOYMENT PROBLEMS AND WITH THEIR DEVELOPING A REALISTIC AND MEANINGFUL OUTLOOK ABOUT THEIR FUTURE. COUNSELING AND EMPLOYMENT PLACEMENT PROBLEMS AROSE FROM THE YOUTHS' INADEQUATE MEANS OF EXPRESSION, LACK OF KNOW-HOW IN TAKING WRITTEN TESTS, ACADEMIC HANDICAPS, AND SELF-DEFEATING ATTITUDES. THE YOUTHS' POLICE RECORDS AND LABOR LAWS PROHIBITING YOUTH EMPLOYMENT FURTHER CONTRIBUTED TO THE PROBLEMS OF FINDING JOBS FOR THEM. (BD)
