Completing the Youth Agenda: A Plan for Knowledge Development, Dissemination and Application for Fiscal 1980.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Youth Programs.
Focusing on follow-through, synthesis, dissemination, and application, this Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act plan for knowledge development in 1980 is divided into seven key sections. The first section presents projects which will require continued funding and refinement to realize their objectives. Section 2 provides a list of initiatives which will commence in 1980 based on development in the two previous years. The third section discusses new initiatives which are needed to (1) improve existing programs, (2) target them on significant segments of the youth population and (3) to test other delivery approaches. Section 4 discusses the need for mechanisms to insure the knowledge developed from these activities is objectively assessed and factored into policy. Section 5 focuses on the need for a significant effort to improve the understanding and competencies of the employment and training system if lessons are to be applied to actual programs. The final sections describe the need for a built-in cushion for unforeseen contingencies as well as needs which arise during 1980 and beyond and review the fiscal 1980 projected findings. (LRA)
