Chasing the American Dream: Jobs, Schools, and Employment Training Programs in New York State.
Mann, Dale; And Others
In a year long study of youth employment, interviews were conducted with 3,130 young people aged 14 to 21 from urban, suburban, and rural areas of New York State. Peer interviewers were employed for data collection. Data were gathered on the youths' employment-related characteristics, socio-economic backgrounds, aspirations, attitudes toward work and school, and on how they spend their time. Additionally, 16 government youth employment training programs were examined. Conclusions and recommendations were made in three categories: targeting services, funding issues, and training communities and programs. (MK)
