Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1966 
18 p. 

Five articles describe the findings of a project designed to evaluate and prepare school dropouts for training or jobs. The Pennsylvania state employment service provided an initial intake interview to evaluate each of the 450 selected youths, all living in north Philadelphia. In spite of this, half of the youth rejected the offer to enter adjustment and training programs. The 165 who completed the programs provided by the Jewish employment and vocational service were all placed in competitive employment. "jobseeking patterns of disadvantaged youth" describes the findings of the initial intake interviews. "counseling and work adjustment" describes the supportive and reinforcing function of counseling in helping the enrollee to develop a worker self-concept reflecting personal status and vocational goals and ways to achieve them. "work adjustment training" describes the work system of increasing the complexity of tasks distributed into broad occupational categories. "the employment service cooperates" discusses the 252 placements by the Pennsylvania state employment services for the 165 youths who completed the training. "the failure cases in a vocational program" discusses characteristics of male and female dropouts and terminated males and females. These articles are reprints from the "employment service review," November and December 1965, and January, march, April 1966. (em)
