Current Federal Policies and Programs for Youth.
Reingold (J.R.) and Associates, Inc., Washington, DC.
This document comprises a department-by-department review of the major federal programs and activities serving youth in 1989-90. Youth initiatives in the following agencies are described and new activities and significant changes are discussed: (1) U.S. Department of Labor; (2) U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; (3) U.S. Department of Education; (4) U.S. Department of Justice; and (5) U.S. Department of Defense. The following observations and issues are outlined: (1) there does not appear to be a comprehensive federal policy for youth emerging from the Bush Administration; (2) some promising attempts have been made to coordinate certain youth activities, such as Youth:2000, a joint initiative between the Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services; (3) the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) demonstrates federal concern for and commitment to youth; and (4) the Bush Administration should commit to an increase in funding for several key youth programs, such as Head Start, Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act, the Job Corps, and JTPA. The appendices comprise the following material: (1) lists of Regional Office contacts for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education; (2) a list of the locations and telephone numbers of Navy and Marine Corps Family Service centers; (3) statistical data on the JTPA Title II-A and II-B funding levels by state, rates of JTPA participants, and estimated expenditures for education in the United States for 1987-88 and 1988-89; and (4) a summary of the Department of Education's budget by category for 1988, 1989, and 1990. A list of Youth and America's Future publications is also appended. (FMW)
