STUDY OF THE MEANING, EXPERIENCE, AND EFFECTS OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD YOUTH CORPS ON NEGRO YOUTH WHO ARE SEEKING WORK. PART II, A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF WORK-SEEKING NEGRO YOUNG MEN WHO ARE NOT PLACED IN JOBS BY INTAKE CENTERS.
HERMAN, MELVIN; SADOFSKY, STANLEY
OF THE 601 YOUTHS WHOSE CHARACTERISTICS WERE STUDIED IN PHASE I (VT 004 090), 377 WERE NOT PLACED IN JOBS OR TRAINING WITHIN THREE MONTHS AFTER THEIR INITIAL INTERVIEW AT THE JOB CENTERS. OF THESE, 201 WERE INTERVIEWED DURING PHASE II TO DETERMINE THE TRAITS WHICH DISTINGUISHED THEM FROM OTHERS WHO HAD BEEN PLACED BY THE CENTERS, AND THE FACTORS IN BOTH THE CENTERS AND THE YOUTHS THAT WERE RELATED TO PLACEMENT. SOME OF THE MAJOR FINDINGS WERE (1) THE SAMPLE YOUTHS VIEWED THE PLACEMENT FUNCTION OF THE JOB CENTERS AS FAR MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE TRAINING AND REMEDIAL SERVICES, (2) THEY DID NOT DIFFER IN ANY MAJOR RESPECT FROM THE YOUTHS IN THE PHASE I STUDY, (3) THE CENTERS WERE MORE SUCCESSFUL IN PLACING THE YOUTHS INTERESTED IN TRAINING THAN THOSE WHO JUST WANTED JOBS, (4) THEY ASSIGNED TO JOBS OR TRAINING EITHER THE YOUTHS WHO WERE AROUND WHEN THE JOB ORDER WAS RECEIVED OR ONES WHO WERE AGGRESSIVE AND PERSONABLE FROM THE COUNSELOR'S VIEWPOINT, RATHER THAN ONES IN THE WAITING LIST FILES, AND (5) THE LACK OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THOSE PLACED BY THE CENTERS AND THOSE NOT PLACED, THOSE PLACED IN PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT AND THOSE PLACED IN WORK TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND THOSE WHO DID AND WHO DID NOT FIND FULL-TIME JOBS SUGGESTED THAT NO SUBGROUP OF THE POPULATION STUDIES WAS MORE VOCATIONALLY IMPAIRED THAN ANOTHER, AND NO SUCH IMPAIRMENT WAS THE BASIS ON WHICH DECISIONS WERE MADE BY THE CENTERS.
