Youth Employment. Policy Statement.
National Collaboration for Youth, Washington, DC.
This paper presents the policy statement on youth employment from the National Collaboration for Youth (NCY). An introduction briefly explains the role of the NCY with regard to youth employment and describes the types of programs and services supported by NCY. A section on background provides statistics on teenagers and employment from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and identifies factors related to the nature and dimensions of the youth employment problem. Myths about teenage unemployment which have hindered society's response to the problem are enumerated and discussed. Also included in the background section are discussions of legislative history, funding history, reasons for NCY interest, and the importance of NCY involvement in the problem of youth employment. The current status of youth employment is examined in the next section. Legislation pending in the United States Congress is listed, current funding status is given, and the current law, the Job Training Partnership Act, is described. Six programs of NCY member agencies are briefly described. The paper concludes with a record of NCY action on the issue of youth employment. (NRB)
