Designed to provide information on the linkages achieved under the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA), this report focuses on education/Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) linkages, the vocational education/CETA connection, and the role of postsecondary institutions (particularly minority colleges) in achieving such linkages. Elements for CETA/local education agency (LEA) agreements are discussed. Described next is the awarding of academic credit under YEDPA. Possibilities for collaborative efforts with work education councils are outlined. Presented next are guidelines and considerations for CETA prime sponsors regarding career/occupational information for youth. Joint Department of Health Education and Welfare and Department of Labor YEDPA workshops are described. Examined next is the interaction of workplaces and classrooms in the l980s. Involving schools in employment and training programs for youth is discussed. Also summarized are five case studies on the impact of YEDPA on education/CETA relationships at the local level. Youth employment training programs and the urban school and LEA/CETA collaboration for career education are also covered. (The second volume of this report and a related report on work education councils are available separately--see note.) (MN)
