ESOPUS PREP. A Residential School for Seriously Disadvantaged Youth. Final Report.
New York City Human Resources Administration, NY.
A 2-year project was designed to: (1) assess the feasibility and relative effectiveness of three camp-setting-residential, prevocational youth manpower development programs of varying durations, (2) develop the trainability potential of hard-core school dropout youngsters, and (3) investigate the feasibility of developing new non-traditional curriculum materials. This "Prep School for the Poor" focused on reaching the most seriously deprived youth with a program of remedial education, prevocational orientation, counseling and residential living. One of the basic goals of the program was to remedy educational deficiencies to the point where the trainee had the choice of continuing his education or seeking employment in the existing job market.
