Breakthrough for Disadvantaged Youth.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
Evaluations have been made of 55 early (1963-66) experimental and demonstration projects conducted in 18 states and the District of Columbia under the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962 to reach and serve youth for whom the conventional approaches, techniques, and personnel seemed inadequate. Experiences and results of the projects are organized under eight headings: impact on the community; recruitment and community penetration; testing, counseling, and supportive services; basic education; prevocational and vocational training programs; job placement, creation, and development; using nonprofessionals; and research activities and problems. Approaches are noted which might be applicable elsewhere, and alternatives are suggested. The document includes a list of projects and abbreviations. (ly)
