Summer Youth Employment Guide.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
This 2-part experimental and demonstration project report is based on research and analysis conducted by the Center for Urban Programs at St. Louis University. Part I, which is derived from observations of summer youth employment programs in several cities, describes a general program guide for operating future summer youth employment programs. Guidelines are outlined for: (1) overall organization and coordination, (2) overall timing, (3) staff and training, (4) job development, (5) recruiting and selecting youth, (6) orienting youth, (7) referral and placement, (8) evaluation and final report, and (9) planning the next summer program. The guide recommends that operations start approximately 6 months before the end of the school year, which necessitates early funding so that staff for each phase can be hired. Also, successful application of the model program would be enhanced if small teams of Labor Department personnel could provide technical assistance. Part II briefly summarizes the summer employment activities in St. Louis, Phoenix, and New Haven, highlighting the main program elements and differences between the programs. An outline of a youth orientation program and a suggested summer program for 14-15 year olds are appended. (SB)
