Walther, Regis H.
This report reviews the experience with Federal programs concerned with the transition from school to work and abstracts lessons and guiding principles which might prove useful for planning and administering training and employment programs. The current labor force situation of youth (persons 16-24 years of age) is reviewed, impediments to the employment of youth are examined, the demographic and attitudinal characteristics of hard-to-employ youth are analyzed, guiding principles developed, and program implications described. Recommendations are made relating to skill training, remedial education, work experience, assessment, counseling, job development and placement, and program coordination. A selected bibliography is also included. (Author/WL)
