Engbretson, William E.; Levine, Eugene A.
The product of a study of urban Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs involving youths aged 16-22 that would result in real or potential job creation and community economic development, this report consists of 24 case studies and a series of recommendations pertaining to the development of similar programs in Illinois. Individual case studies included in the report were selected as examples of programs demonstrating linkages, alternative technologies, leadership, leveraging, spin-offs, education, introduction to potential and real works, transisitonal employment, cottage industry, and small and large organizations.
