This book focuses on Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA) programs dedicated to reducing unemployment among youth. The first of seven sections reviews the Youth Incentive Entitlement Pilot Projects (YIEPP) that have been established in seventeen urban and rural target areas. Brief descriptions of the YIEPP Programs in Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Cincinnati are provided. Section 2 describes two Career Intern Programs which are among the demonstration projects under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) that seek new approaches to the problems of structured unemployment facing youth. The third section focuses on Job Corps programs that provide vocational training, preparation for return to school, or education to satisfy armed forces entrance requirements. Section 4 provides a brief description of the Young Adult Conservation Corps, which provides minimum wage jobs that give experience in a variety of skills centered around conservation. The Summer Youth Employment Program, which provides economically disadvantaged youth with nine weeks of summer work, is discussed in the fifth section. Section 6 expounds on preapprenticeship programs funded under the Youth Employment and Training Programs of YEDPA. The final section focuses on an in-school youth training demonstration project titled project YEELD (Youth Employment-Experience-Learning Demonstration). (LRA)
