Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Wisconsin Vocational Studies Center.
Designed to serve as a resource to persons who work with youth and who plan activities to improve the education/work connection, this report identifies existing programs and activities that address the education-to-work connection and work to improve youth employment. It consists of three sections. The first section contains an overview of youth employment with implications for vocational education. The second section (the bulk of the report) consists of program/activity report forms describing 274 youth employment programs in the fifty states, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Each program report form contains the following information: program/activity title, operating agency/institution, contact person, number served by the project, program activity description, appropriate descriptors of the program/activity, and evaluation/indicators of success. Reports are arranged alphabetically by state. A brief section on methodology, a program index by state and title, and an index by descriptors are also provided. The third section contains thirty-nine additional references which address the problem of youth employment. (MN)
