Program Experience. A Review of Youth Employment Problems, Programs & Policies: Volume 3. Program Experience.
Vice President's Task Force on Youth Employment, Washington, DC.
This series of fifteen reports reviews available information on youth employment program experience. (It constitutes the third of a three-volume compendium; other volumes examine the causes and dimensions of youth employment problems and cover special needs and problems of youth employment policy--see note.) The youth employment delivery system, lessons from program experience, and practitioners' perspectives on youth programs are discussed in the first three reports. The next four reports examine the role and effectiveness of public sector job creation for youth and youth access to private sector jobs. Practical alternatives for providing educational remedies to the unemployment of poor youth and approaches to basic education are described. The philosophy of occupational training and ten successful programs are discussed in a pair of reports on training and motivating youth. A conceptual framework for supportive services and the relationship between alternative education and youth employment are set forth. City Schools that are instructionally effective for poor children are identified, and analysed in the final report. (MN)
