A Study of the Effectiveness of Selected Out-of-School Urban Neighborhood Youth Corps Programs. Program Implications.
Walther, Regis H.
"Research results indicate that the Neighborhood Youth Corps (NYC) has been effective in reaching seriously disadvantaged youth and in improving the community and work adjustments of these youths. At the same time, these achievements appear to fall far short of the full potential of the NYC Programs." Among the problems of program and policy which need solutions are the differential "reach" of NYC (more Negro than white, and more female than male enrollees) and the high unemployment rate of ex-enrollees. The findings imply that attention must be given to the ideal program "mix", remedial education, effective use of work assignments, length of time in NYC, job development, and interagency coordination. For other aspects of this research see UD 007 867, UD 007 868, and ED 020 407. (NH)
