Hopkins, Laurie I.
The Youth Career Action Program is an example of a vocational-educational program that can be implemented within a large city in conjunction with a secondary school district. The YCAP Center provides a clearly designated place for hard-to-place young people--primarily those who are under-educated, economically disadvantaged, and have little concept of work and employer expectations--to come for highly individualized services relating to vocational and educational development. The specific goal of YCAP is to be a focal point for school, governmental, and community efforts to aid the target population. The program annually helps at least 1,000 young people to prepare for entry into suitable jobs and plan for satisfactory careers. (Author)
