Youth Programs: Practical Lessons from Research and Program Experience, Dec 1987
This issue offers a synthesis of the lessons from work/education partnerships in 21 cities and discussions of a number of leading work/education partnership program models. "Effective Work/Education Partnerships" summarizes lessons of effective partnerships identified during an examination of 21 programs sponsored by the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation. The article highlights important steps that every partnership should take to achieve success and identifies issues that collaborations must address to ensure survival. "Work/Education Partnerships in Three Cities" provides lessons drawn from the experiences of three cities: Boston, Massachusetts; Portland, Oregon; and Richmond, Virginia. The article describes their three distinct strategies for bringing together schools, businesses, job training agencies, and other institutions to help young people make the transition from school to employment or further education. "Career Beginnings: A National School to College Partnership" describes Career Beginnings, a new national program that attempts to offer young men and women a route to either work or college, depending on the needs and capacities of each of the 5,000 students it serves. "From the Bookcase" (Andrew Hahn) reviews recent publications related to youth and youth programs. "CHR Notes" (Erik Butler) summarizes recent activities in which the Center for Human Resources has participated. (YLB)
