Improving Services to Young Parents through CETA.
Boochever, Stephen; And Others
This report is addressed to Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) sponsors to familiarize them with the issues concerning adolescent pregnancy, highlight innovative approaches in working with young parents, and offer suggestions on how to reach and serve young parents with CETA. The report focuses on the problems of young parents, both male and female, married and unmarried, and under age 22, paralleling CETA youth program eligibility. However, young mothers receive more attention because little is known about the needs and problems of young fathers. The report provides an historical background of services to young people, a description of service delivery at the local level, and strategies for improving these services. An overview of CETA outlines the program's role and centers on the CETA programs available to young parents. Appendices include: (1) selected statistics on pregnancy related issues and young parents' participation in CETA programs; (2) case studies from CETA programs in Baltimore, Maryland, Albuquerque-Bernalillo County, New Mexico, and Mid-Willamette Valley, Oregon; (3) information for counselors; (4) interviews with selected experts; and (5) recommended publications and films.
