Youth Labor Markets for Puerto Rican-Latin American Youth Labor Market in New York City.
Molina, Charles, Jr.
An integrated job preparation model with development rationale is presented for use by social action agencies in serving Puerto Rican/Hispanic youth clientele. Findings of background research to isolate demographic and cultural variables of the primary target audiences are summarized. An organizational evaluation is also described which studied the goals, objectives, procedures and accomplishments of 250 New York City agencies (profit-making, community service, and government) involved in processing and dissemination of job market information. The job preparation model itself begins with explanations of youth needs and problems followed by appropriate intake procedures including various types of testing and assessment. Next, training objectives are discussed in light of the assessment results with emphasis given to a total training design including job skills, self-awareness, and motivation. Some suggested training tools are listed with mention made of mainstreaming, traditional skills training, and youth staff. Preparation for the world of work includes a discussion of motivation methodology, survival education, and a continuous counseling program. Job development procedures are suggested and emphasis is given to development of job banks, communication with job sources, planning, research of job market, and creation of jobs. (FP)
