Title :
  National Job Corps Study: Eligible Applicants
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report describes eligible Job Corps applicants' sources of information about Job Corps, their program expectations, and their experiences with the program's outreach and admissions (OA) system, which seeks to recruit and screen disadvantaged youths who can benefit from Job Corps. Baseline interview data are used for the analysis. The report provides information that will help Job Corps interpret program impact estimates in the future; it also provides information on the OA system from the perspective of eligible program applicants, which may be of use to policymakers who seek to improve program operations. It is intended to complement a separate report on the process analysis for the evaluation, a report that will present a detailed description of OA processes and systems using data from interviews with program staff.
