EXPERIMENTS WILL BE CONDUCTED IN TESTING, COUNSELING, VOCATIONAL TRAINING, RESEARCH AND EVALUATION METHODS, JOB RECRUITMENT, AND PLACEMENT PROCEDURES, AND IN ROLES FOR PROFESSIONALS AND SUBPROFESSIONALS. FIVE HUNDRED YOUTH WILL BE ADMITTED DURING THE FIRST YEAR AND 1,000 DURING THE SECOND YEAR OF THE PROJECT FOR A STAY OF ABOUT 1 YEAR. MOST OF THE PROPOSAL CONTAINS EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND AND THEORETICAL MATERIAL AS WELL AS DESCRIPTIONS OF PROGRAM PLANS AND OF EVALUATION AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. (NC)
