Phoenix Union High School District #210. CETA Youth Employment Training Program, 1979/80.
The 1979/80 Comprehensive Employment and Training Act Youth Employment Training Program in the Phoenix Union High School District was evaluated in two ways: (1) enrollment figures and participant demographics were compared to project goals; and (2) opinion surveys of participants, job-site supervisors, youth advisors, and parents of participants were conducted. Findings indicated that enrollment goals for age, sex, and ethnic distribution were met. All groups surveyed indicated that the CETA program helped participants to develop good work habits and learn new skills. Relations between participants and their supervisors were seen as productive by all concerned. Youth advisors felt that they placed their clients as closely as possible to their career interests, and participants, parents and job supervisors concurred. Students liked their jobs and expressed favorable opinions of both their job supervisors and their youth advisors. Overall, the majority of participants, job-site supervisors, and parents rated the program as excellent. The majority of youth advisors rated it as good.
