Office of Economic Opportunity, Washington, DC.
The document seeks to identify the issues, programs, and resources most relevant to Youth Development Programs (YDPs) engaged in education programs. YDPs, under the direction of the Office of Economic Opportunity, are designed to help disadvantaged youth while involving them in establishing and operating youth councils and various program activities. Education issues and possible solutions offered by YDPs are discussed, including: quality education, student rights, and working in or out of the educational system. Points to consider in implementing an education project are described in general terms. As examples, the development, goals, and services of six YDP projects in various cities are summarized. These programs provide: basic education for school dropouts, tutoring, career exploration, cultural awareness, financial assistance for postsecondary education, and alternative high schools. The location and a contact for each program are given. Specific funding and staffing resources for YDPs available from local school districts, State and Federal government, foundations, local businesses, and unions are identified. Appended are: a 14-page guide to Fiscal Year 1972 Office of Education administered programs, a bibliography, with some annotations, for tutoring programs, and lists of tutoring materials and their sources.
