Schilit, Henrietta; Lacey, Richard
This manual profiles 55 school-business cooperative programs being carried out in the United States for the purpose of improving access to employment for high school students, particularly minorities and the economically disadvantaged, before they graduate. Each of the manual's chapters is devoted to a particular type of cooperative program and presents several examples of such ventures. Programs described include: (1) classes in business and industry; (2) public-private initiatives to create new schools; (3) curriculum revitalization through industry participation; (4) teacher internships in business and industry; (5) "adopt-a-school" programs; (6) work-study programs; (7) summer youth employment; and (8) career exploration. Characteristics of successful programs are summarized. Finally, lists of contacts, resources, and technical assistance sources are provided. (GC)
