Program Evaluations. Lessons from Experience: An Interim Review of the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act. Youth Knowledge Development Report 3.19.
Butler, Eric; Parker, Jim
This interim review of the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA) youth programs focuses on five topics through which were considered the universe of need, program experience, and policy recommendations. Chapter 1 is an introduction which briefly describes the law itself, including summaries of its major parts. It also discusses the method used to review YEDPA and present the findings. The next five chapters (2-6) are devoted to the topics used to structure the review: (1) public sector job creation, (2) access to the private sector, (3) educational strategies and institutions, (4) supportive services, and (5) management and research. These chapters open with a brief discussion of the main goals/purposes of the law with respect to the topic. They then proceed, in a largely narrative manner, to delineate lessons accumulated through two years of implementing the law. Chapter 7 is a brief concluding note on knowledge development. A sixteen-page bibliography includes a number of program reports, memoranda, and other unpublished documents. (YLB)
