A Project to Communicate and Replicate a Model Career Education Program. Final Report, July 1, 1977-June 30, 1979.
Kimple, James, Jr.; And Others
The overall goal of the Jobs for Youth/Fund for the Improvement of Post-secondary Education (JFY/FIPSE) project was the testing of JFY Educational Services (ES) as a model work-related literacy program capable of being replicated in situations other than New York City. First-year activities (1977-78) focused on replication of the ES Replication Manual. Following intensive review of operations and procedures in New York and Boston, extensive revision was undertaken in the second year (1978-79) to clarify the manual, reconcile differences in operation between Boston and New York, and change procedures which needed modification. The replication evaluation consisted of a report from an "assessment team" which determined the extent to which stated goals were achieved. Project outcomes were program replication, the replication manual, and dissemination activities (conference presentations, professional publications, and technical assistance). An informal impact study of the effect of ES in promoting the basic JFY goal--youth employment--yielded tentative indications of positive effects. The replicated program also has had an impact on services to other JFY program units, the community, a number of small businesses, and other agencies wishing to establish their own work-related literacy programs.
