A Tale of Three Cities. Security Education Employment Program.
National Crime Prevention Council, Washington, DC.
This report discusses the Security Education Employment Program (SEEP), an employment and training program for high school students that matches students with opportunities in private security. It outlines the seven objectives established for the three-city test--job placements, exposure to the security profession, enhanced job skills, development of community partnerships, enrichment of school curriculum/experience, better-trained and more community-conscious security recruits, and student involvement in preventing crime. The report also draws lessons of interest to security professionals, employment specialists, youth workers, and educators. Lessons are grouped into subject areas: youth employment programs, youth development, community partnerships, versions of the program and how they work, potential problems, and program costs. Investments and dividends are listed for these participants: student/employee, school and school leaders, employer, professionals, community leaders, and community funders. The report describes what happened at each site--Harbor City Learning Center, Baltimore; Shaw High School, Cleveland; and Vashon High School, St. Louis--as well as program-wide. A final section presents questions to help determine whether a community should actively pursue starting a SEEP program. (YLB)
