Job Training Partnership Act. Public Law 97-300.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The Job Training Partnership Act is intended to establish programs to prepare youth and unskilled adults for entry into the labor force and to afford job training to those economically disadvantaged individuals who are in special need of such training to obtain productive employment. The act is organized into five titles. Title I prescribes the job training partnership, including the service delivery system (such as private industry councils and job training plans), state responsibilities, program requirements, and federal and fiscal administrative provisions. Title II contains provisions for training services for the disadvantaged, including adult and youth programs and summer youth employment and training programs. Title III explains employment and training assistance for dislocated workers, including allocation of funds, identification of dislocated workers, and state plans, while Title IV describes federally administered programs. These programs include employment and training projects for Native Americans and migrants, the Job Corps, veterans employment programs, national activities such as pilot projects, labor market information, the National Commission for Employment Policy, and training to fulfill affirmative action obligations. The final title contains miscellaneous provisions concerning the Wagner-Peyser Act, Social Security Act, and Military Selective Service Act. (KC)
