Adolescent motivation and learning in a summer youth employment program

McCausland, Suzy G. 04 May 1995 (has links)
Summer Youth Employment Programs (SYEPs) provide disadvantaged youth jobs and employment experiences. These federally funded programs meet a practical need to help adolescents earn money and have positive summer activities. In addition, federal administrators have implemented program requirements designed to give youth relevant training for future employment. One federal requirement for SYEPs is that all youth are to be screened to determine their basic reading and math skills. In addition to a job, local programs are to provide remedial instruction to youth who fail to meet minimum standards for reading and math. In 1994, SYEPs were also mandated to provide "educational enrichment" for at least half of all participating youth. This study was an evaluation of a SYEP in a Northwestern State and its implementation of different models of employment, remediation, and educational enrichment. Each model was operated in conjunction with a job. For youth who qualified for academic remediation, the two programs were a remedial class or on-the-job remedial enrichment. For youth who did not require remediation, the two models were a job alone or a job with educational enrichment. Outcomes evaluated included self-esteem using the Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale (Rosenberg, 1965), self-mastery with the Mastery Scale (Pearlin & Schooler, 1978), and intellectual responsibility using the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Scale (Crandall & Crandall, 1965). Job-related reading and math skills were screened at program intake with the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) (1988) and as a post-test for youth receiving remediation. For remedial youth, all significant findings favored youth in enrichment projects rather than in remedial classes. For non-remedial youth, those in a job alone, rather than in a job with enrichment, had the most positive outcomes. The study suggests research to change the motivational patterns of adolescents in local programs is needed before additional program interventions are mandated. Missing data and non-random assignment of youth and staff to program groups were problematic. / Graduation date: 1995

Access to employment : work and citizenship in Diepkloof.

Masemola, Rebone 15 September 2014 (has links)
The report is divided into four main chapters: The first chapter introduces the topic, relevant literature and details surrounding the event and context. The second chapter gives a detailed ethnographic and historical background of Soweto and Diepkloof, and will discuss the conditions under which the Township was founded. It also shows how the development of the Diepkloof Square only served to reinforce existing social differences that have been imagined by the employed and the unemployed residents over the years. Chapter three focuses on the tensions between the employed and the unemployed members of Diepkloof, and will discuss and analyze the resident’s perspectives on work and citizenship. Chapter four looks at the dynamics that I have observed between Diepkloof Business Forum (DBF), state representatives and the developers, discusses and highlights many of the contradictions which I came across during the research. It came to my attention that there was a sufficient amount of press coverage from prominent newspapers around the scandals that overshadowed the building and the opening of the shopping centre, and as a result I begin by looking through the newspaper archives covered by the media as part of the methodology. The process allowed me to reconstruct a timeline of events leading to the hiring of workers and the opening of the retailers, and to understand the role played by the media in the recreation of the narrative around the Diepkloof Square project. I also got in contact with many of the participants through references from existing participants and through being referred. It concludes that the controversial promises of jobs were never kept by the developers and state representatives, thus has looked at how parties within the Township contested the sense of what the developers owed to the residents. The focus is particularly on questions about the link between work on the one hand and the dynamics of citizenship or belonging on the other.

A comparative study of the employment equity at the University of Limpopo and the University of Venda for Science and Technology

Ajani, Yetunde January 2005 (has links)
Thesis (M.A) (Psychology)--University of Limpopo,2005. / This study investigates developments with regard to employment equity at the University of Limpopo, Turfloop Campus (UL) and University of Venda for Science and Technology (UNIVEN). Questionnaires from 139 respondents at UNIVEN and 159 at UL were analyzed. All the respondents are staff members of both institutions drawn from academic, administrative and technical staff. It was found that there have been positive changes for designated groups since the Employment Equity Act, No. 55 of 1998, was promulgated. When the two institutions were compared, independent sample T-tests indicated that there was no significant difference between the two institutions in terms of progress made in employment equity. From the findings it was thus concluded that there has been a gradual improvement in recruitment procedures, advertising and selection criteria, appointments and the appointment process, job classification and grading, remuneration, employment benefits and terms of conditions of employment, job assignments, the working environment and facilities, training and development, performance evaluation systems, promotion, transfer, demotion, and disciplinary measures among others at UNIVEN and UL. / Espen Walderhaug for financial assistance
