CETA-Education Demonstration Project.
This paper provides a non-technical summary of the plans and rationale for eleven CETA-Education Demonstration Projects. It also explains the design of the projects and indicates what is expected of the participating prime sponsors, education agencies, and federal departments. Seven principles relating to the need to alleviate youth unemployment by providing youth with basic academic skills, work experience, and career information through community-based networks of people and services are presented as a basis on which to build the CETA programs of the 80s. The emphasis of the Youth Incentives and the rationale for demonstration projects are outlined. The goals and objectives of the demonstration projects are presented. The pilot sites are listed along with the reasons for their selection. Project emphasis areas (CETA, education, and joint program areas) are discussed. Four steps in the formation of project operating plans, which are to be implemented during the first year, are summarized, and additional project activities are described. The role of the Labor and Education Departments in these projects and the help which the demonstration sites will receive are discussed. Project evaluation procedures are covered. A note on the value of the demonstration projects concludes the paper. (MN)
