  WOTC, new policies around needs based payments,

  The Recovery Act increases the youth age
   eligibility to a maximum of 24 years old. These
   changes only apply to youth funded with Recovery
   Act funds.

  The major theme arising from our Technical
   Assistance (TA) request is the need to provide
   assistance around transitioning older out-of-school
   youth after the end of the Summer 2009 Work
   Experience Program.

VISION
 Integrate SYEP into the Shared Youth Vision Mission.
   – Shared Youth Vision– a partnership between Labor,
     Education, Health and Human Services, Urban
     Development, Justice, Social Security, and the
     Corporation for National and Community Service.

         – A Collaborative Approach to prepare youth for success
           in a Global Demand-Driven Economy: the nation’s
           neediest youth will acquire the talents, skills, and
           knowledge necessary to ensure their healthy transition
           to successful adult roles and responsibilities.

RESOURCES
 MULTIPLE EDUCATION PATHWAYS
    – Knowing and using the variety of models of alternative
      education: Early and Middle Colleges, gateway
      programs, career academies, Diploma Plus,
      experiential learning environments, Twilight
      Academies, etc.
           – Maximizing the use of established systems: Job
             Corps, Youthbuild, Center for Employment and
             Training (CET), Youth Service and Conservation
             Corps.
           – Maximum and creative use of ARRA/SYEP funding

 SKILLS
  Innovation and Creativity at the service level – services are
   dynamic when they actualize youth conceptualizations such
   as “shared vision” for an individual young person

  Flexibility – ex. work readiness – only performance
   measure during the summer

  Connecting SYEP to existing WIA systems and all
   community efforts for older youth; i.e., transitioning

  Establishing mechanisms for self-driven career exploration
   and obtaining credentials

  PLANNING
   Develop a comprehensive SYEP plan that
    incorporates collaboration, transitioning and
    focuses upon individual capacity building for
    self-directed career exploration.

   Utilize the ISS process to instill personal
    responsibility and require self-directed activities
    from youth participants.

   INCENTIVES
    ARRA/SYEP Funding

    WOTC (Work Opportunity Tax Credit)

    Expansion of youth eligibility to 24 years of
     age.

    Co-enrollment in WIA Adult Programs

 EVALUATION
  Build in a mid-program review of the
   SYEP plan and adjust as possible.

  Structure at least two reviews of the ISS
   during the summer program. These can
   be the focus of transitioning events.

   Effectively managing and coordinating
   these six elements:
      Vision
      Resources
      Skills
      Incentives
      Planning
      Evaluation
   offers opportunities to maximize this funding bonus
   and turn the SYEP into a dynamic launch pad for
   older youth career exploration and development.

  Once you have found them never let
   them go!
 – The long-range goal, not the current
   program should guide planned activities
   with each participant (ISS as a living
   document!)
 – The activity immediately following the
   current program should be identified at the
   beginning of the program and emphasized
   throughout.

 Put the participant in the driver’s seat!
     – Develop an ISS that includes activities beyond the
       SYEP.
     – Set up a process that requires youth to actualize
       their ISS with the case manager as a resource
     – Asset-based assessment requires that we see the
       participant as a resource, not a problem. Hold
       them accountable to their planning.
     – Establish transitioning events within the life of the
       summer program that enable the participant to
       clearly define their next steps.

  Establish teams and/or small groups of older
   youth focused on transitioning.
         – There are many advantages of the mutual
           aid process that have advantages for both
           the youth and the case manager in
           accomplishing their goals.

        Group work and the mutual aid process
        offers more opportunities to observe a
        person’s interpersonal skills, perceptions,
        and behaviors. Hence, there are more
        opportunities for on-going assessment and
        plan modification.
