Impacts of YEDPA on Education/CETA Relationships at the Local Level. Five Case Studies. Office of Youth Programs Special Report Number 1.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Youth Programs.; Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
Five Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA)/Local Education Agency (LEA) programs designed to provide youth with employment-related services were reviewed. Onsite visits were conducted to assess program development and implementation in Houston, Worcester (Massachusetts), Minnesota, Fairfax County (Virginia), and Los Angeles. (Each area review is reported in depth.) A summary of the reviews found that (1) the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA) has contributed to improved CETA communications with the public schools; (2) YEDPA provides opportunities for the education and employment/training communities to have substantial impact on the quality of education and training for youth; (3) the cooperativeness of previous relationships, community size, and degree of prior preparation contributed to CETA/LEA program development; (4) lack of time for comprehensive program planning affected most sites; (5) the Youth Employment and Training Programs (YETP) reaches students who would not otherwise be served; (6) program regulations hinder broad exposure of youth to private sector job opportunities; (7) school requirements (such as credit, scheduling, etc.) deserve more attention; and (8) most school and prime sponsor officials felt more money was required to meet deserving youth needs.
