A Study of the Effectiveness of Selected Out-Of-School Neighborhood Youth Corps Programs. The Cincinnati Clerical Co-Op: A Formal Skill Training Program.
Walther, Regis H.
This is a report of the results of the Cincinnati Clerical Co-Op, a formal skill training program designed to enhance the clerical employability of out-of-school Neighborhood Youth Corps enrollees in Cincinnati. This program alternates cycles of work experience in firms that are potential employers and training in relevant skills and behaviors in a Neighborhood Youth Corps Educational Center. The sample consisted of 127 enrollees; data included enrollment, program experience, and followup information. Compared to a control group, significantly more of the Co-Op subjects had achieved a good adjustment to the world of work. Age and school grade completed were associated with success. The employment effectiveness of this program suggests the value of other programs modeled on Co-Op procedures. (Author/DM)
