This report contains the hearings for the 1977 Youth Employment and Training Act. The act is designed to approach the problem of youth unemployment. The hearings begin with opening statements by Senator Jacob Javits, who emphasizes three major points of the proposed amendments: (1) the need for greater targeting of programs to the disadvantaged; (2) the importance of improving education and work linkages by providing incentives for cooperation between prime sponsors and local education agencies in administering in-school youth employment and training programs; and (3) the need to develop at national and state levels occupationally and geographically relevant occupational information and career development systems which provide information to in-school and out-of-school persons. Texts are presented of Senate Bill 1242, which provides for youth employment and training opportunities, and House Role 2992, an Act, which authorizes 1978 appropriations for carrying out the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act as amended. Statements from witnesses are provided chronologically for each of the three hearing days. Various statements from associations and individuals are also included. Additional information is provided in terms of relevant articles and publications and communications to and from concerned individuals. (CSS)
