Youth Serving the Community: Realistic Public Service Roles for Young Workers. Final Report.
National Child Labor Committee, New York, NY.
This report on youth employment programs is intended to help prime sponsors and program operators implement innovative youth employment efforts under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) and the Youth Employment and Demonstration Project Act (YEDPA). The content is in two chapters. Chapter 1 covers the introduction, meeting community needs, recognizing needs of youth, staff, and project elements. The second chapter, comprising most of the report, provides brief descriptions of work experience projects (many of which involve adults but can be adapted to meet the needs and abilities of youth) in the following ten areas: housing, health, environment and conservation, social services, public safety, public works, cultural and beautification, education, economic and community development, and clerical and administrative. Each of the many projects covered includes project title, city and/or state, bibliographic citation, and description. A bibliography containing 156 references is attached. (EM)
