A Directory of Training and Employment Programs in the Private Sector Emphasis: Disadvantaged Youth.
This directory lists 117 programs sponsored by the private sector for the training and employment of disadvantaged youth. (It is the first in a series of program guides to be issued regularly by the Public/Private Ventures' Resource Center.) Programs had to meet two criteria to be included: (1) they involved participation of the private sector through provision of employment or work experience; participation in advisory boards or oversight committees; financial support; donation or loan of facilities, equipment, or staff to help with program, training, or administration; and/or other "in-kind" services; and (2) they were designed for or appropriate to the special needs of disadvantaged youth. Programs are grouped by the three broad categories of pre-employment, skills training (auto mechanics, clerical and office, computer, construction, machines, welding, and miscellaneous), and career pathways (career exploration, careers in energy, entrepreneurship, and internship). Each program entry includes these nine elements: date established; capacity (maximum number of participants per training period); location; administrative structure, including funding source; nature of private sector involvement and names of businesses; program features; population served, contact, and source of information. An alphabetical index is provided. (YLB)
