It begins with a discussion of the current challenges in preparing all young people today for the workforce. The report then provides a chronology of job training and employment programs for at-risk youth that began in the 1930s and were expanded or modified from the 1960s through the 1990s. It goes on to discuss the four youth programs authorized under WIOA [Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act], and draws comparisons between these programs. Following this section is a detailed discussion of each of the programs, including program purpose and structure, participants, financial allocations, and performance oversight."
