This report reviews legislatively mandated linkages between prime sponsors and local education agencies (LEAs) in providing employment, education, and training for youth. The legislation discussed includes (1) the 1977 Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA), (2) the Young Adult Conservation Corps, (3) the Youth Incentive Entitlement Pilot Projects, (4) the Youth Community Conservation and Improvement Projects, and (5) the Youth Employment and Training Program. Senate and House bills for continuation and revision of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Amendments (CETA) of 1978, which incorporates YEDPA, are discussed. Highlights are presented from a series of Department of Health Education and Welfare/Department of Labor workshops for prime sponsors and representatives of LEAs to provide information and to encourage collaboration on projects authorized under YEDPA. Participants' view on implementing collaboration, career development, work experience, and academic credit are reported. Various examples are provided to demonstrate the Work-Education Consortium Council's involvement in assisting CETA/LEA collaboration, involvement with LEAs and involvement with CETA prime sponsors. The appendix contains relevant sections of Title IV--Youth Programs of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Amendments of 1978. (CSS)
