A survey examined the involvement of 11 voluntary agencies in providing employment-related services and programs for youth. A field-tested survey was completed by 1,005 respondents from corporate units of the following organizations: American Red Cross Youth Services, Boys' Clubs of America, Boy Scouts of America, Camp Fire, 4-H Youth Programs, Future Homemakers of America, Girl Scouts of America, Girls' Clubs of America, National Boards of the Young Men's and Women's Christian Association, and United Neighborhood Centers of America. Data concerning services provided by each organization were collected and summarized in a series of program descriptions. Areas included in each program description were sample size and return rate; youth (youth served, youth served in employment-related programs, youth served in agency-supported and Comprehensive Employment and Training Act or CETA-supported programs, youth served by major U.S. region); program (youth employment programs 1975-1978; types of programs offered; employment programs for rural, suburban, inner city, and urban youth; employment programs by major U.S. region; employment programs supported by agency and CETA budgets); program funding; and future programs (types of programs and funding sources).
