Supporting Youth Employment: A Guide for Community Groups

6/23/2003:   Public money available for education, job training, and youth programs nationwide is dwindling, and many young people in low-income communities donít have opportunities to acquire the skills and credentials necessary to get high-paying jobs in the private sector. Thatís why Public/Private Ventures has created Supporting Youth Employment: A Guide for Community Groups, a resource for parents, youth workers, educators, and young people. The publication profiles effective programs and offers tools, activities, and supports to help vulnerable youth get marketable skills. Supporting Youth Employment explains three major public funding sources that can support job-related training for youth: the Workforce Investment Act, TANF, and State Education Assistance.
