Vulnerable Youth: Employment and Job Training Programs
Adrienne L. Fernandes-Alcantra (au)
In an increasingly global economy, and with retirement starting for the Baby Boomer generation, Congress has indicated a strong interest in ensuring that todayńˇ╗s young people have the educational attainment and employment experience needed to become highly skilled workers, contributing taxpayers, and successful participants in civic life. Challenges in the economy and among certain youth populations, however, have heightened concern among policymakers that some young people may not be prepared to fill these roles. The employment levels for youth under age 25 have declined markedly in recent years, including in the wake of the 2007-2009 recession. Since the 1930s, federal job training and employment programs and policies have sought to connect vulnerable youth to work and school. Contents of this report: History of Federal Youth Employment and Job Training Programs; Overview of Youth Programs Authorized Under Title I of the Workforce Investment Act; Youth Activities Formula Grant Program; Job Corps; YouthBuild; Reintegration of Ex-Offenders; Youth Opportunity Grants. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
