Targeting on In-School Youth: Four Strategies for Coordinating Education and Employment Training. An Analysis of Four In-School Alternatives for Education and Employment Training. Interim Report #3.
Rist, Ray C.; And Others
The four programmatic school-to-work transition models being developed and implemented by Youthwork, Inc. are assessed. The thrust is both to distinguish these strategies, one from another, and to clarify the variations that occur within each of these four models: academic credit for work experience, expanded private sector involvement, career awareness, and job creation through youth-operated projects. An introductory chapter and another discussing methodology are followed by four substantive chapters, one for each of the four strategies being analyzed. Each chapter analyzes one strategy according to program administration, program curriculum, the form and content of granting academic credit, youth involvement in program operation, and staff-student relations. In addition, each model is studied from the perspective of one or more additional issues specific to the model. Recommendations for the generic as well as strategy-specific concerns are located at the end of each chapter. An analysis packet on program administration is appended. A summary and overview of those findings generic to all four strategies appear at the front of the report. (YLB)
