This report describes the third conference on Youth Employment sponsored by the National Collaboration for Youth (NCY) held in Washington, D.C., June 13-14, 1979. An introduction adresses the realities of youth unemployment. NCY goals are then presented. Opening day proceedings summarized include the opening speech; three presentations dealing with the unique role of private voluntary organizations in collaborative efforts to combat youth unemployment; information hour on Comprehensive Employment and Training Act youth programs; two evening session keynote speeches regarding government-business-voluntary organization cooperation and congressional concerns; and a youth caucus which formulated recommendations for youth employment and training programs. These proceedings are summarized for the second day of the conference: presentations of thirteen model exemplary youth employment programs conducted by the NCY Agencies; discussion groups sharing experiences and explorations and a summary of their key recommendations for consideration and action; and the closing presentation and reactions on the future partnership between private voluntary organizations and government.
