Recipes for Success: Youth Council Guide to Creating a Youth Development System under WIA. Technical Assistance and Training Materials for Youth Councils.
Pines, Marion; Callahan, Jim
This guide is designed to provide practical information for community leaders, local Workforce Investment Boards, Youth Councils, staff, and others committed to effective youth and workforce development. Its four sections provide technical assistance and training materials for Youth Councils. Chapter 1, "Planning the Menu," defines youth development, outlines the basic concepts of making connections for young people (system building), describes how the Workforce Investment Act 1998 (WIA) can make a difference, and starts a work plan for Youth Councils. Chapter 2, "Youth Councils: Essential Ingredients," addresses the wide range of Youth Council responsibilities, from organization and staffing to strategic planning and accountability. Chapter 3, "Transition to WIA: From Soup to Nuts," addresses resource allocation decision making, follow-up services, the performance system, selecting service providers, and other important administrative decisions. Chapter 4, "Coming Together at the Table," depicts the pathways to comprehensive service delivery that are based on proven principles and practices. The building blocks that are available as the platform for developing a system for young people are described. (YLB)
