National Job Corps study : the benefits and costs of Job Corps by Sheena M McConnell( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A benefit-cost analysis of the Job Corps program compared groups randomly assigned to either enroll in the program or to constitute a control group that did not enroll. Youth who participated in the study were those found eligible for Job Corps nationwide between November 1994 and February 1996. Interviews with participants and the assignment of dollar values to costs and benefits were among the research methods used. Benefits and costs measured included the following: (1) benefits of increased output resulting from the additional productivity of Job Corps participants; (2) benefits from reduced use of other programs and services; (3) benefits from reduced crime committed by or against participants; and (4) program costs and costs of resources used by Job Corps. Benefits and costs were measured from the perspectives of society as a whole, participants, and the rest of society (non-participants in Job Corps). The study's findings indicate that Job Corps is a good investment. The benefits to society exceed the costs of the program by nearly $17,000 per participant, assuming that the observed earnings impacts do not decline rapidly as participants get older. The researchers say evidence from other studies suggests the impacts will persist without rapid decay. The study concluded that Job Corps is a valuable program whose benefits exceed costs over a wide spectrum of student groups and for several areas of society. (The report includes 28 tables and 11 figures.) (Kc)

Youth Offender Demonstration Project process evaluation (final report) by Ed Miller( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing consensus among experts holds that youth who come under court supervision have multiple issues that require comprehensive and coordinated services and strategies to help them prepare for and attain jobs at wages that will sustain a constructive life path. A comprehensive approach, in theory, reduces dependency and breaks the pervasive cycle of crime and recidivism often experienced by youthful offenders and others who are at risk of court involvement. A significant effort to identify promising practices that have the potential to help prepare youthful offenders for employment was the Youth Offender Demonstration Project (yodp), a 24-month-long pilot that began in the summer of 1999. The goal of the evaluation was to document the implementation process over the demonstration period. The evaluation was to note achievements and challenges as project staffs attempted to deliver integrated services to the target population. To the extent possible, the evaluation also was to report the outcomes of the projects' efforts to transition youth offenders and youth at risk of becoming court involved to full-time employment at livable wages in positions with career potential. This volume describes, assesses, and summarizes the findings. A major part of the evaluation focuses on the extent that the projects were effective in building upon existing programs and systems to serve targeted youth. Five appendixes contain the solicitation for grant applications; scope of the work; field research guide; Category I Final Report Summaries; and Category iii Final Report Summaries.

National Job Corps study : Job Corps applicants' programmatic experiences : final report by Terry R Johnson( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Job Corps Study was undertaken to obtain the information needed to assess the Job Corps' success in providing employment assistance to disadvantaged youths aged 16 to 24 years. The study's findings related to outreach and admissions (oa) and center characteristics and practices that appear to promote positive programmatic experiences for Job Corps applicants and participants were examined by using agency records for a randomly selected sample of youth who were eligible to enroll in Job Corps. The following items had significant impacts on applicants' programmatic experiences: (1) oa counselors' outreach and screening practices; (2) oa counselors' knowledge and experience level; (3) center operator type, size, and location; and (4) the strength of centers' vocational and academic programs. The particular vocational areas offered by centers and the range of vocations offered did not significantly affect students' programmatic experiences. Limited residential living facilities were associated with shorter lengths of stay, but exceptionally good facilities did not appear to promote longer lengths of stay. (Twenty-two tables/figures are included. The following items are appended: the study methodology; results for vocational choices of Job Corps students; results for applicant typologies; and a description of the methods used to estimate impacts for different Job Corps program experiences.)
