1970 External Summer Youth Opportunity Campaign.
Federal Highway Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
The Federal Highway Administration exceeded its goal of 50,000 jobs in its 1970 External Summer Youth Opportunity Campaign by providing 57,646 jobs. Of the jobs available, a large majority were filled by disadvantaged youth. Various Federal and private agencies were involved in making the program work. This pamphlet describes the national youth program and highlights its accomplishments. At the end, it is concluded that the program was an apparent success from the standpoint of exceeding the goal for the number of youths hired and the number of disadvantaged youths hired. In addition, several unique approaches have been tried this year to increase the opportunity of meaningful employment and to provide a better future for the disadvantaged and minority groups.
