Section 2 includes statistics describing Missouri's youth unemployment perspectives; employment projections for Missouri by occupation are also given. Section 3 provides a brief history of employment and training programs, including the Manpower Development and Training Act, the Economic Opportunity Act, the Emergency Employment Act, and the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act. Descriptions of Missouri's CETA youth programs are presented in section 4. The final section summarizes the needs that must be met to help cope with and/or solve Missouri's youth employment problems.
