Youth Works Final Report. Youth Works-Americorps Final Report. Report to the Legislature.
Minnesota State Dept. of Children, Families, and Learning, St. Paul.
This document consists of a 1996-97 final report of Youth Works*AmeriCorps (YW*AC) and a supplemental report with information collected by the Minnesota Department of Children, Families, and Learning. The final report provides information on the third year of collaboration among the Minnesota Commission on National and Community Service, individual YW*AC programs, and University of Minnesota Evaluation Team across five reporting areas: demographic profile of Members, services provided to the state, impact of service on members, efforts to improve capacity for self evaluation and reporting within programs, and cost benefit analysis. Positive results are cited: Minnesota has a diverse, gender-fair, well-educated corps; services to Minnesotans are increasing each year; the service experience continues to have a significant impact on members; and programs continue to operate in a cost-effective manner. The second report provides material on the Minnesota Commission on National and Community Service, describes service program partners, and profiles YW*AC. It includes overviews of the following YW*AC programs: Minneapolis Public Schools/Community Education; St. Paul Future Force; Minnesota Conservation Corps; Minnesota Department of Economic Security: MN Serve; Multicultural Communities in Action: Neighborhood House; Pillsbury Neighborhood Services; Partners in Service to America: Red Lake Tribal Council; Southern Minnesota YW*AC; Twin Cities Youth and Housing Initiative; Volunteers in Service to America; and national AC programs for seniors, K-12, and higher education.
