Operation Job Start. Final Report.
Human Development and Education Corp., Patterson, NJ.
Operation Job Start is an experimental project which seeks to reconcile the opposing attitudes of unemployed youth, who feel that no meaningful employment opportunities exist for them, and the employers who believe that these youth would not make good employees. In order to bring the two groups together, four major areas are emphasized: (1) efforts to change the attitudes of both employers and youth, (2) management assistance to modify jobs, (3) a counseling program for youth participants during the first 3 months after placement, and (4) uniform criteria to evaluate individual adjustment and company efforts. The findings include observations about the job adjustment of disadvantaged youth, evaluation of the project, and recommended changes for future efforts. The report stresses the need for greater application of the principles of human relations, supervision, and personnel psychology to the needs of disadvantaged youth. (BH)
