Summer Jobs for Youth '81 Program. Final Evaluation Report.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
The Summer Jobs for Youth Program (1981) was established by the New York City Partnership to develop private sector summer jobs for economically disadvantaged youth. The evaluation of the program was based upon a telephone survey of company executives, job site supervisors, youth workers who participated in the program, companies who made summer job commitments and later cancelled them, and participants in the 1980 program who chose not to participate in 1981. The survey found that young workers were the most cooperative respondents, whereas employers who cancelled job orders were the most reluctant respondents. The majority of youth workers rated each of nine areas of the job experience as excellent or good. The large majority of company executives and job site supervisors reacted positively to the program. The majority of company executives and workers said they would participate in a similar program the following year. The majority of job site supervisors said that the young workers' performance was average or better than average. (JCD)
