Program group members were more likely than control group members to work in the year following random assignment, but the quarterly employment rates of the two research groups converged shortly after the YAIP subsidized internships ended.

Beschreibung der Aktivität

Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP)
Introduced in 2007, YAIP is a workforce development program designed for young New Yorkers living in poverty who are neither in school nor working, but who are believed to have the potential to benefit from a relatively brief, non-intensive intervention. In theory, the YAIP target population is not so disadvantaged that they need extensive wraparound services, but disadvantaged enough to require the support of a program to acquire the skills and experience needed to improve their labor market prospects and give them a “jump start” back into productive activity.
phase 1: 2 to 4 weeks phase 2: 10 to 12 weeks phase 3: 9 months
about 30 young adults per cohort
between 16 and 24 years old

Evaluierung der Aktivität

The evaluation includes an implementation study, an impact study, and a benefit-cost analysis. This report presents implementation and early impact findings (after one year). The impact study uses a randomized controlled trial design in which individuals eligible for and interested in YAIP were randomly assigned to either a program group, which was offered YAIP services, or to a control group, which was not offered those services. Data sources for the impact study include administrative records on wages and postsecondary enrollment, subsidized employment payroll records, and surveys conducted approximately 4, 12, and 30 months after participants entered the study.
The study will evaluate impacts on employment and earnings, education and training, and well-being, among other areas.
