National Collaboration for Youth, Washington, DC.
The National Collaboration for Youth is a coalition of 17 of the largest national youth-serving organizations in the United States. Comparative data on community-based, youth-development organizations has been lacking. This report presents findings of a study that measured the compensation, benefits, minimum educational requirements, number of position vacancies, and average tenure of youth-development professionals in community-based agencies affiliated with the National Collaboration for Youth. In January 1995, a total of 2,057 surveys were sent to member agencies of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Camp Fire Boys and Girls, Girl Scouts of the USA, Girls Incorporated, National Network for Youth, and YWCA of the USA. A total of 899 surveys were completed, a 44 percent response rate. The document includes data and job descriptions for the following job categories: executive/managerial positions, middle management, functional administrative specialists, supervisors, direct-service providers, direct-service support staff, and seasonal staff. Section 1 presents data on compensation, vacancies, tenure, and minimum education requirements. Section 2 provides information on leave-time practices. Sections 3 through 5 offer data regarding insurance practices, other benefits, and salary increments. Numerous tables are included. Appendices contain a list of positions not included in the report and additional youth-development positions identified by survey respondents. (LMI)
