This Consolidated Youth Employment Program demonstration (CYEP), implemented in eight prime sponsor areas in fiscal 1979, consolidated the activities and services formerly provided by the Summer Youth Employment Program, the Youth Community Conservation and Improvement Projects, and the Youth and Employment Training Programs. The fundamental elements of this two-year demonstration program include a simplified planning framework to utilize fully the flexibility resulting from consolidation of summer, school-year, and year-round and in- and out-of-school programs; an individualized service delivery approach; reports on participants, services, and expenditures; specification of new individual performance requirements; local establishment of benchmarks of achievement to assess progress of participants towards basic competencies required for successful employment; emphasis on linkages with education and vocational education; and experimentation with flexibility in allowance payments. The first two quarterly assessments indicate the basic soundness of the notions involved in CYEP, but also the challenges in implementation. Problems and recommendations for solving problems in the areas of program planning, administration, and enrollment were discussed.
