Survey and Analysis of In-School NYC Programs. Final Report.
In a broad sense, this study is concerned with increasing the responsiveness of the federal government in improving the employment prospects of disadvantaged youth. In a narrower sense, it is concerned with increasing the effectiveness and the efficiency of local In-School Neighborhood Youth Corps (NYC) programs. This report had four specific objectives: (1) to provide a descriptive overview of the types of programmatic activities carried out by In-School NYC programs across the nation; (2) to investigate the factors causing variations in the successfulness of local In-School NYC programs; (3) to identify and describe various types of program-level and activity-level innovations that have originated at the local level in In-School NYC; and, (4) to develop a design for the establishment of a retrieval system for the regular reporting, analysis, and dissemination of information on locally-based innovations in In-School NYC. The primary sources of data for the fundings summarized in this Final Report are the nationwide census of all local In-School NYC programs and the in-depth interviews with the 31 selected local programs. A modular framework is developed to categorize and describe programmatic activities typically carried out by local In-School NYC programs. (Author/JM)
