Youth Entitlement Demonstration Frogram. A Summary Report on the Start-Up Period of the Youth Incentive Pilot Projects, January-June, 1978.
Ball, Joseph; And Others
The Youth Incentive Entitlement Pilot Projects were set up to aid disadvantaged youths, ages 16 to 19, guaranteeing them a part-time job during the school year and a full-time job during summer months on the condition that they remain in, or return to, a secondary school or enroll in an equivalency education program. It was started in January, 1978, and currently enrolls about 30,000 youths in 17 sites across the country. This report, covering the period from January through June, 1978, summarizes program start-up issues and characteristics of the first group of enrollees. It is divided into six sections. Section 1 introduces the project and provides background information on the Youth Entitlement Program, while section 2 describes the characteristics of the participating youths. Sections 3 and 4 describe the program start-up, recruitment and enrollment of youth, job development, and worksites; and section 5 proposes the research and evaluation efforts that will be needed to gain information about the projects in order to better serve youth needs in the future and details the reports that are expected to evolve from the program. Section 6 focuses on cost of the program. Each of the 17 pilot project sites are described in the appendix to the report. (KC)
