Report on Experimental and Demonstration Manpower Project for the TIDE Program, As An Extension of the Summer Youth Demonstration Program in Youth Opportunity Centers.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
Youth Opportunity Centers (YOC's) sponsored a Testing, Informing, Discussing, and Evaluating (TIDE) program for youth in the summers of 1966 and 1967. This report provides data primarily on the second phase of TIDE which was operated from July to December of 1967 at 29 youth centers in 22 states. In this second part of the program, 1,031 youth received employment orientation training at 32 YOC's. These youth were mainly disadvantaged, 25 percent had police records, and 92 percent were school dropouts. About two-thirds of the trainees received some kind of aid from the program. About 20 percent were placed in jobs, 15 percent entered the job corps, 13 percent returned to school, and 11 percent were recruited for MDTA vocational training. A summary of the TIDE programs for 1966 and 1967 for all 32 YOC's is included in the report. The 1966 report is available as ED 014 017. (BC)
