A Longitudinal Study of Selected Out-of School NYC-2 Programs in Four Cities: (An Evaluation of the 1972 Washington Summer Intern Program of the Department of Labor).
Walther, Regis H.; And Others
The 1972 Washington Summer Intern Program was a special work experience, underwritten by the Department of Labor, for approximately 100 young people--high school juniors, for the most part--who came to Washington from many places in the United States. The program was operated by three sponsors for three ethnic groups: Spanish-Speaking, Black, and Native Americans. Although the specific objectives of the operating sponsors varied to some extent, each had goals related to helping interns in their career planning and preparations and in their knowledge of government operations and service. Results indicated that although there were many differences between the programs operated by the three sponsores, interns were nearly unanimous in very high appreciations of the overall usefulness of their experience. Other study results indicated that the experience had been effective in career-related and knowledge-of-government program goal areas. (Author)
