A Summary of Retrospective Studies of the Effectiveness of NYC Out-of-School Programs in Four Urban Sites.
Walther, Regis H.
Reported is the first phase of a project to evaluate the effectiveness of selected Neighborhood Youth Corps (NYC) programs. Effectiveness was judged by community and work adjustment of enrollees. Experimental and control groups were selected in four cities; samples were mainly Negroes, with more females than males. Findings from interviews with the sample subjects showed that the program was effective but needs improvement in the racial and sex balance of enrollees as well as in the work adjustment objectives of NYC (even among the NYC enrollees unemployment was high). Noted is the need for attention to such policy issues as more effective job development, coordination between various vocational training programs, improved remedial efforts, followup counseling, and the differential needs of enrollees. For subsequent, related research see UD 007 866 and UD 007 867. This document is a summary of ED 020 407. (NH)
