Comparison of Outcomes for Youth Apprenticeship Projects and Youth Career Development Projects. Supplementary Report.
Richards, James M., Jr.; And Others
The New Youth Initiatives in Apprenticeship Program (YAP) was compared with the Youth Career Development Program (YCD). Data for 1979 and 1980 came from an evaluation of YAP projects by CSR, Incorporated, and an evaluation of the YCD projects by the Educational Testing Service. A multiple regression approach was used to compare student characteristics, effects of participating in YCD and YAP, and effects of participation on a variety of outcomes. Due to program focuses, YAP and YCD had different client groups. YAP clients were predominantly male and white, YCD clients--female and black. YAP participants were likely to have a substantial advantage in obtaining employment. Analyses indicated participants' sex and race were more strongly associated with employment outcomes than differences in program impact. YAP and YCD participants with employment experience exhibited relatively high job satisfaction scores and the lowest level of satisfaction with their pay. YAP participation did seem to lead to greater job satisfaction. Supervisors of both groups appeared to give approximately equal ratings to participants. Comparative analyses did not provide strong evidence of program impact by either demonstration concept, nor did comparisons reveal sharp differences in program impacts.
