Employment Problems and Programs for Inner-City Youth. Technical Report.
DeLapp, Lynn; And Others
This technical report details the employment problems of inner-city youth and describes some programs that have successfully met these problems. The first of its three parts describes inner-city youth and enumerates the major employment barriers facing them. (It was found that while inner-city youth tend to be disadvantaged, a subgroup of them faces even more awesome barriers, such as drug dependencies, criminal records, learning disabilities, and health problems). The second part describes six successful employment/vocational education programs in each of the five major metropolitan areas in California, as well as one program specifically designed to aid high-risk youth. The third part of the report deals with factors associated with the success of programs serving the general population of inner-city, out-of-school youth. Report appendixes include statistics on inner-city out-of-school youth, interview instruments used to gather data, and examples of funding sources serving youth in California during fiscal year 1981-82.
