A Positive Force: The First Two Years of Youth Fair Chance (1997)

Research and Evaluation Report Series 97-H

The Youth Fair Chance (YFC) program, started in 1994. The program supports efforts in 16 urban and rural areas to help young people ages 14 to 30 finish high school, get better jobs, and address personal and family problems that are obstacles to success (a 17th site was added later). The program, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), provides youths with education, employment preparation and training, counseling, and support services. Case managers coordinate the services and try to help young people find solutions to problems. YFC programs generally operate in areas that have fewer than 30,000 residents, high poverty rates, and other problems associated with poverty. This report describes features of the YFC programs, analyzes their implementation, and draws lessons from their experiences that may be useful for designers of youth programs and comprehensive community initiatives.
