Let's Work Together: Strategies for Youth Employability Development. A Handbook.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This handbook for vocational educators, counselors, employment and training program staff, and youth agency personnel contains ideas for planning and delivering coordinated youth employment services by vocational education and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) employment and training programs. Following an overview, section 1 introduces employability in the 1980s, anticipated outcomes of coordinated services, and a rationale for the "Let's Work Together" models for three eudcational settings. Section 2 offers techniques for coordinating services around the five essential minimum areas of a coordinated program: administration organization, services to youth, educational/employability development services, work experiences, and transition from school to work. Models of coordinated services that have been used in the state of Washington are described in section 3 according to the essential administrative program areas. These include comprehensive high school (large high school), pre-vocational program (vocational-technical institute), vocational cooperative program (small high school), regional skills center, and juvenile justice programs. Section 4 tells what local and national resources exist and how to find them. Annotations are provided for these types of resources: vocational agencies in the State of Washington, occupational and career information delivery systems, assessment instruments, and helpful resources. Appendixes include an assessment instrument, a glossary, sample interagency agreements, and other sample program forms. (YLB)
