Competency Among Hard-To-Employ Youths. Final Report.
This report consists of five chapters: the first evaluates a theory of youth unemployment which particulary pertains to youths who are skillful in "nonstandard" competencies--the theory of competing competencies. The second chapter illustrates such behavior through the use of a case history. The third chapter presents empirical support for the theory based on data from two large-scale intervention projects. The development of standard and nonstandard competencies is the focus of the fourth chapter. The final chapter broadens the theoretical discussion and concludes by applying these ideas more precisely to youth unemployment manpower development programs. (Author)
