Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP)

To create an effective youth employment delivery system requires a strong convening entity, an effective administrative agent, a well-trained case management team, strong partnerships across youth-serving systems and high quality work experience and career exposure components.

These are the conclusion of this new report, which identifies and examines effective practices of youth employment in cities such as Baltimore, San Diego, Boston, Philadelphia and Hartford, Conn., which all created their youth employment delivery systems under the U.S. Department of Labor-funded Youth Opportunity grants of 2000. The report deals with topics that range from the importance of clearly stated education, employment and career goals to partnering with various youth-serving systems, such as the juvenile justice system.
