Study of New Youth Initiatives in Apprenticeship. Interim Report. Volume 1: Summary and Issues.
CSR, Inc., Washington, DC.
This first volume of the interim report on the Study of New Youth Initiatives in Apprenticeship presents a discussion of site visit findings and implementation issues related to the United States Department of Labor's Apprenticeship-School Linkage Demonstrations. (Volume 2, site visit reports, is available separately as CE 032 792.) Chapter 1 introduces the Youth Apprenticeship Projects, explains purpose and limitations of the interim report, and details the report's organization. Chapter 2 overviews all of the apprenticeship-school linkage demonstrations. It consists of five summary sections, including information on the local context/operating environment, administration, program activities, developmental strategies, and operational experiences of the eight Youth Apprenticeship Projects. Chapter 3 discusses seven major issues arising from implementation of the projects: interface between the Department of Labor and relevant educational organizations, influence of type of sponsoring organization, impact of the reporting system, dual participation of Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training and Office of Youth Programs, role of cooperative education, involvement of local labor unions, and status of independent efforts to replicate the apprenticeship-school linkage concept.
