Strategies for Youth at Risk.
Markowicz, Arlene, Ed.; And Others
NAB Clearinghouse Quarterly, v1 n3 Fall 1984
This issue targets the high risk segment of the youth population and their high unemployment rate. An overview discusses the contents. Ten "Bulletins" offer descriptions of programs and projects and demonstrate how long-term training, work and academic experience, and individualized training operate in functioning programs. To assist service delivery areas in serving at-risk youths, the bulletins also provide ideas for marketing youth programs, innovative ways to compensate participants for lack of stipends, and strategies to involve the business community. Each bulletin provides these types of information: operators, summary, results, time span, funding, outline (activities), followup, progress, problems, hints for success, products/publications, and contact. Over 40 references in the annotated bibliography provide additional sources of youth programming information. Three book reviews highlight opportunities available under the Job Training Partnership Act to shift from an employment outcome to an employability outcome. The final section with background materials offers "WorkAmerica" reprints of articles on programs for at-risk youth. (YLB)
