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 :
  Beyond a Summer Work Experience: The Recovery Act 2009 Post-Summer Youth Employment Initiative
Release Date :
  January 9, 2012
Abstract :

Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), states received $1.2 billion in funding for Workforce Investment Act Youth Program activities to provide employment and training activities targeted to disadvantaged youth. In addition to supporting large-scale youth employment activities in the summers of 2009 and 2010, the Recovery Act also gave states the option to continue to fund work experience opportunities for out-of-school youth ages 18 to 24 for an additional six months, spanning a "post-summer" time frame of October 1, 2009, to March 31, 2010.

This study examines how some local areas used their Recovery Act funds to serve youth beyond the 2009 summer months. Using qualitative data collected through visits to eight local sites in seven states, this report describes key features of the sites' post-summer youth employment initiative, and lessons that may help inform future efforts to provide work experience and other activities to older, out-of-school youth.
