Summer-Jobs-for-Youth Program Guide. How to Develop and Manage a Summer Youth Jobs Program. A Technical Assistance Guide.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
This guide offers a practical approach for operating summer youth employment programs that involves cooperation among private businesses and local organizations. A timetable provides a month-by-month schedule. Seven sections discuss management responsibilities. Program Planning covers scope, goals, and coordination. Program Management addresses development of an operational structure, program staffing, and information management. Program Resources discusses the vital role of volunteer staff and suggests ways to augment limited resources. Public Relations outlines publicity and marketing techniques, stresses the importance of public relations, and tells how to earn a positive public image. Recruitment addresses the importance of selling program services to youth participants, employers, cooperating organizations, and the media. Follow-up discusses the importance and usefulness of maintaining contact with all participants throughout the employment period. Program Evaluation links aspects of the program for ongoing and final evaluations. Some sections provide examples of forms or materials and each section concludes with illustrations that indicate pitfalls and problems when essential ingredients are not part of the program and describes ways private industry councils and other program operators have addressed the activity. Appendixes provide case studies of six 1982 summer youth jobs programs. Each contains a program description, goals and results, program features, and public/private sector involvement. (YLB)
