There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

Title :
  Interim Report for The Department of Labor Youth Offender Demonstration Project Process Evaluation
Release Date :
Abstract :
  A record number of 500,000 offenders will return to their communities in 2001, with juvenile offenders representing an important segment of this reentry group. Without structured aftercare supervision and services, youth offenders reentering their communities may relapse, commit crimes, and return to confinement in either juvenile or adult correctional facilities. Evidence shows that active intervention for young offenders can help raise employment and decrease crime and recidivism, reducing their costs to society.

As a result, the U.S. Departments of Labor and Justice funded 14 local demonstration projects in Program Year 1998 which were designed to assist youth at risk of criminal involvement, youth offenders, and gang members ages 14 through 24 into long-term employment at wages that prevent future dependency and break the cycle of crime and juvenile delinquency. This process evaluation provides an interim assessment of the implementation process undertaken by each project and determines the extent to which each was effective in building upon existing programs and systems to serve targeted youth.
