Operation Retrieval. Disadvantaged Youth: Problems of Job Placement, Job Creation, and Job Development.
Ferman, Louis A.
Operation Retrieval is a research project designed by the Department of Labor to review and assess the experiences of 55 experimental and demonstration projects for disadvantaged youth conducted during the period 1963-65, and to assess the impact of strategies in job placement, job creation, and job development. Job placement and development units are discussed in terms of their relationship to other project components, the structure of the staff, and the location of the job placement unit. Methods used to obtain jobs for disadvantaged youth include: (1) applying traditional techniques, (2) developing new jobs, (3) working with employers to modify job requirements, and (4) developing youth potential to meet employer standards. Five types of problems and possible approaches to job placement are: educational deficiencies, arrest records, and physical, emotional, and resource problems. Follow-up is discussed in connection with supportive services and employment experiences. Recommendations relate to retrieval and use of information, research, inter-agency relations, and follow-up activities. (JK)
