Insights into CETA's In-School Youth Programs.
General Accounting Office, Washington, DC.
In-school youth programs that operated under Title IVA-3, Youth Employment and Training Programs (YETP), and under Title IIB of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) were reviewed. Standardized survey questionnaires mailed to former participants in the IIB and YETP in-school youth programs focused on post-termination education, employment experiences and views on how programs helped with education/employment goals. Survey questionnaires mailed to prime sponsors obtained information on structure and operation of 1981 in-school youth programs and views on potential provisions of future employment and training legislation. More prime sponsors served in-school youth under YETP than under IIB, but there were few statistically significant differences between the two programs. Those differences tended to stem from specific objectives in the YETP legislation. More YETP participants were awarded academic credit, and YETP permitted a greater array of services. Also, few differences were found between YETP and IIB participants. This seven-page narrative summary of results is followed by appendixes including a more detailed discussion, data on sponsor views on future employment and training programs, review methodology, and data tables of questionnaire results.
