Youth Employment and Training Grants. Final Report to the Legislature.
Russell, Scott
This report summarizes the work of five Minnesota organizations that received funding on a competitive basis to develop an integrated program of education, job training, and work experience for youth who have dropped out or who are at-risk of dropping out of high school. The report contains the following: (1) a brief description of the legislative history of the Minnesota program and the process by which grants were awarded and the programs developed; (2) analyses of the strengths and concerns in each of the five proposals; (3) a description of the three major components of each program (education, work experience--including the expansion of housing for homeless and very low income persons, and job readiness); and (4) a description of other legislatively required components of the programs (encouraging youth participation, maximizing parental involvement, providing support services for participants, developing a management plan for the housing units, and planning program evaluation). (The five organizations that had projects were The City, Inc.; the Anoka County Community Action Program; the Mankato Area Coalition for Affordable Housing; the Bi-County Community Action Program; and the National Youth Leadership Council.)
