Summary

The Women's Bureau works to improve the economic status of women by seeking equity in employment policies. The Bureau has completed several pilot projects serving different populations of women and providing training in job skills, job readiness, job placement, support services, and information sharing. This document presents a program guide describing projects undertaken by the Women's Bureau to provide employment programs for adolescent mothers. The guide is intended for use by community-based organizations and by local and state governments concerned with increasing the employment opportunities of these women. The introduction describes issues affecting teenage mothers, development of the program concepts, and a demonstration of the Adolescent Mothers Initiative. Needs of teenage mothers relevant to the program design are identified and several essential program elements are discussed. Community-based, school-based, and work-study program models are described. Experiences of the six demonstration projects are included. Examples of specific approaches taken by the participating communities are shared and strategies are suggested for planning and implementing a program. The appendices provide information on program elements at each site and on the Women's Bureau Women in Nontraditional Careers instructional materials. (NB)
