WICKLAND, ROGER F.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS SURVEY WAS TO EVALUATE THE "IMPACT" MADE ON COMMUNITY AGENCIES AND INSTITUTIONS AT THE LOCAL AND NATIONAL LEVELS BY THE EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION (E AND D) YOUTH PROJECTS FUNDED BY THE OFFICE OF MANPOWER POLICY, EVALUATION, AND RESEARCH (OMPER). THE PROJECTS WERE DIRECTED TOWARD DEVELOPING AND DEMONSTRATING NEW WAYS OF MEETING THE EMPLOYMENT NEEDS OF DISADVANTAGED YOUTH. OF ABOUT 55 SUCH YOUTH PROJECTS ACTIVATED SINCE PASSAGE OF THE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT IN 1962, 14 WERE VISITED PERSONALLY. "IMPACT" WAS VIEWED AS HAVING TWO MAJOR ASPECTS -- (1) THE DEGREE TO WHICH PROJECTS SECURED COOPERATION FROM AGENCIES AND INSTITUTIONS RELEVANT TO THE REALIZATION OF PROJECT GOALS, AND (2) THE DEGREE OF UTILIZATION OF PROJECT FINDINGS BY OTHER AGENCIES AND INSTITUTIONS. DATA WITH REFERENCE TO IMPACT CLAIMED ARE PRESENTED FOR BENEFIT-RECEIVERS OR POTENTIAL CONSUMERS OF E AND D PROJECT FINDINGS AT LOCAL, STATE, AND NATIONAL LEVELS. ON AN OVERALL BASIS, OMPER E AND D PROJECT "IMPACT" WAS VERY SIGNIFICANT. APPENDIX A LISTS E AND D PROJECTS VISITED, AND APPENDIX B LISTS E AND D PROJECTS WHICH HAVE BEEN CONTINUED BY REGULAR PROGRAMS. (PS)
