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.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Finding One's Way: Career Guidance for Disadvantaged Youth
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This study shows that career guidance programs have been generally beneficial in the Job Training Partnership Act and throughout the public educational system, but are seldom comprehensive or fully utilized. The study recommends that the programs address a wider range of youth career needs; offer activities more appropriate to successive ages and stages of adolescent development; emphasize values, attitudes, and general work habits rather than specific occupational information and technical skills; and tighten work education linkages. The study includes an extensive bibliography.
