Rochester Jobs, Inc., NY.
Operation Young Adults is a combined work-study program for potential and actual high school dropouts, designed to demonstrate the relationship between education and the world of work. During Phase One, the program served a total of 532 students, aged 14 through 21, of whom 110 had already dropped out of the traditional high school setting. The objectives of the program were: (1) To assist actual dropouts and dropout-prone youth in understanding the relationship between education and work; (2) To test the feasibility of a joint educational approach utilizing trade instructors and academic teachers; (3) To develop a work related curriculum; (4) To develop a process for transferring earnings into the regular school system.
