101 Ideas for Summer Youth Jobs. Tips on Organizing and Running a Summer Youth Jobs Program.
National Alliance of Business, Inc., Washington, DC.
This book offers interested organizations suggestions, tips, and ideas to stimulate thinking for developing summer jobs programs in the community. It is a collection of workable summer youth jobs programs that are drawn from the over 100 locations in which National Alliance of Business (NAB) regional services offices provided technical assistance and materials in 1982. Sections offer information on organizations or combinations of organizations that can take the lead in developing programs, suggestions for getting started, examples for setting goals, hints on securing resources, information on sources and their potential contributions, examples of uses of loaned staff and volunteers, and ways to administer a successful summer youth jobs program. Examples are provided of innovative ways programs have improved eight program operations: publicity/public relations, participant recruitment, job development, job placement/marketing, youth orientation, follow-up, employer orientation, and evaluation. Other sections describe special state- and city-wide efforts, how six corporations created hundreds of summer youth jobs, summer vocational exploration programs, summer on-the-job training, and 12 specific summer youth jobs opportunities. Addresses of NAB regional service offices are appended. (YLB)
