This document presents five winning entries in the second annual competition for papers reporting research and policy studies on the topic of youth employability. In their paper entitled "The Impact of Employment and Training Programs on the Work Attitudes of Disadvantaged Youth," Michael Forcier and Andrew Hahn review and synthesize the theoretical literature regarding the impact of such programs on disadvantaged youth. Margaret Gaddy and Janet Ockerman-Garza, in a study entitled "Predicting Academic Success for High Risk Students: Implications for Improving the Postsecondary Response to Youth Employability," examine issues related to identifying and supporting low-income and minority youth as a strategy for increasing employability. The paper "On Creating Viable Work Experience Programs: Design and Implementation" by Mary Agnes Hamilton addresses the issue of quality in work experience programs. In their paper on "Youth Employability Training: Linkage as a Catalyst," Katherine Manley and Daniel Volger examine the notion of linkage between vocational education and CETA as a catalyst for improving youth employability training. A distinguishing feature of the study by Janice Shack-Marquez entitled "Information and the Employment Success of Young Men" is the development of a working definition of various aspects of information that young people need.
