A Knowledge Development Plan for Youth Initiatives, Fiscal 1979.
Employment and Training Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Office of Youth Programs.
This report summarizes the past, present, and future activities of the Knowledge Development Plan for Youth Initiatives, which is being developed and implemented as part of the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA). First, a framework for the plan is given, covering the aims of the fiscal 1978 and 1979 activities which stress research, evaluation, and demonstration projects. In the next section, which provides a progress report on the knowledge development efforts for fiscal 1978, the following programs are highlighted: (1) the Entitlement Program, (2) Community Improvement Discretionary Projects, (3) Youth Employment and Training Programs Discretionary Projects, (4) the Summer Program for Economically Disadvantaged Youth (SPEDY), and (5) the Job Corps. The section devoted to fiscal 1979 provides a plan for continuing the programs from 1978 and trying to fill gaps, establish better coordination of the programs, and focus on priority knowledge development areas. In recognition of the formidable array of projects being conducted in fiscal 1979, the next section assesses the feasibility and outlines the implementation strategy for each project. The final section explores the knowledge development payoff on sixteen issues--i.e., what will be learned and when. A time schedule is established for information that will be available at three different dates. (ELG)
