Trio for Youth. Three Employment and Training Programs.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
These three articles describe three programs operating under the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA), a comprehensive endeavor to lower the high rate of joblessness among youth. The first article focuses on the Youth Incentive Entitlement Pilot Projects--popularly called Entitlement--which is an experimental and intensive program. It discusses this first large-scale effort to guarantee employment to a population segment which actively addresses itself to linking education and work. The second paper gives an account of the success of the Job Corps college program through its Advanced Career Training (ACT) program at colleges and postsecondary vocational institutions. The third article presents the story of Baltimore's Learning Works, an example of how a community benefits from a partnership formed by the government and the private sector. It discusses the use of PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automatic Teaching Operations), a teaching computer, by educationally disadvantaged clients to finish their education and learn job search skills.
