YEDPA and Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph provides a narrative summary of ideas and thoughts gathered from two mini-conferences held to discuss the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act of 1977 (YEDPA) as it relates to career education. The conference participants included eight representatives of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) prime sponsors and nine educators, all of whom were involved in implementing YEDPA during its first year of operation. First, the historical antecedents of YEDPA are traced based primarily on an earlier monograph by G. L. Mangum, "Career Education and the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act." Next, an overview of YEDPA is presented focusing on the three major subparts: Youth Incentive Entitlement Projects (YIEP); Youth Community Conservation and Improvement Projects (YCCIP); and Youth Employment Training Program (YETP). A summary of the discussions in the mini-conferences is presented under six topical areas: (1) primary concerns of CETA and/or YEDPA prime sponsors; (2) descriptions of current YIEP and YETP efforts; (3) problems encountered with early YETP efforts; (4) examples of ways in which YETP programs are supplementing educational opportunities; (5) recommendations of participants for increasing the effectiveness of YEDPA; and (6) philosophical issues to be resolved in local education agency/prime sponsor agreements. An appendix contains a list of sixty-two related issues raised by the participants. (BM)
