Delinquency and Public Policy: Educational and Vocational Problems of 14- and 15 -Year-Old Parolees and Probationers.
New York Univ., NY. Center for the Study of Unemployed Youth.
The 39 participants attended a 2-day conference which focused on the special problems of youth between 14 and 16 years of age who are on probation or on parole. Many are not attending school, but because of their age, these youths have great difficulty in finding employment, are not eligible for enrollment in government-sponsored community work programs, and cannot enter the military services. Also, community services and organized programs are often not available to them. Major workshop presentations were: (1) "Employment of Youth- by Eli E. Cohen and (2) "Survey of Parole and Probation Officers, New York State" by Michael Munk. Discussions followed the presentations, and participants made short-and long-range policy recommendations to help alleviate problems. Short-range recommendations were made concerning the Job Corps, work-study programs, private educational alternatives, union and business involvement, Neighborhood Youth Corps, and girls' problems, while long-range recommendations were made for foreign experience, compulsory school attendance or work, delinquency and public policy, and the labor market.
