YEDPA and Career Education. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph summarizes discussions by participants at two mini-conferences who were involved in beginning attempts to implement the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA) legislation. The first section presents a historical overview of YEDPA which focuses on a monograph by Garth L. Mangum. Both ineffective and effective program strategies are listed. The second section then describes the YEDPA legislation (which is currently being rewritten). Five concerns of prime sponsors regarding interactions among Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), YEDPA, and local education agencies (LEAs) are then discussed. The next section summarizes Youth Incentive Entitlement Projects (YIEP) efforts in Seattle, Washington; Detroit, Michigan; Boston, Massachusetts; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Baltimore, Maryland. A summary of problems encountered in early Youth Employment Training Programs (YETP) efforts as well as some examples of ways in which YETP programs supplement educational opportunities follow. Concluding sections list nine recommendations for increasing the effectiveness of YEDPA and four philosophical issues which should be resolved in LEA/prime sponsor agreements. (YLB)
