Handbook on Youth Participation in Youth Employment Programs.
National Commission on Resources for Youth, Inc., New York, NY.
This handbook provides Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) prime sponsors and youth program planners with information on planning and implementing youth participation in their employment programs. (Youth participation means projects in which young people assume responsibility for work that meets genuine community needs.) Section 1 explains youth participation and its relevance for youth employment, providing steps prime sponsors can take to foster youth participation in their own programs. Section 2 provides case studies of four CETA programs that exemplify youth participation in terms of four concerns related to reconciling youth participation with CETA regulations, priorities, and concerns: program development, supervision, skill training, and evaluation. Descriptions in more specific detail, of how different projects have dealt with these concerns, follow in section 3. Section 4 focuses on monitoring, evaluating, and assessing and on how young people can be involved in those processes. The final section explains how prime sponsors and project operators can obtain technical assistance from the National Commission on Resources for Youth, Inc. to help them introduce or increase youth participation.
