Program Evaluations: CETA Youth Programs in Small Cities. Youth Knowledge Development Report 3.18.
National League of Cities, Washington, DC.
This report makes recommendations to enhance the delivery of Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) services to small-city youth. It draws on the data base created by National League of Cities Youth Employment activities which provided a profile of the small city in CETA youth program operations, identified kinds of problems that affect delivery of CETA services to small city youth, and examined the CETA administrative structures that determine how planning decisions are made and who makes them. Section 1 describes project activities and outlines the methodology used in developing the data base. Section 2 provides a statistical profile of the small city in CETA youth operations based largely on data generated by a nation-wide survey of small cities. Section 3 discusses characteristics of small cities that affect planning and implementing CETA youth programs and examines some problems of program administration in small and rural communities. Section 4 attempts to draw general conclusions and offer recommendations to enhance delivery of CETA youth services in small cities. Appendixes contain methodology and statistical tables of the mail survey and summaries of model youth programs operating in small and rural cities. (YLB)
