An evaluative program to estimate component contributions to the Los Angeles Women's Job Corps Center's purpose of helping girls rise out of poverty. Based on comparisons of outcomes among girls as individuals rather than groups, an evaluation design was developed for estimating the relationship between post-program economic prospects, corpswoman attitudes, and each element of the set of services received from the Center. Long-term outcomes cannot be observed for some time after a girl leaves the Center, but the use of near-term outcomes is appropriate when these are related to long-term outcomes. The primary focus of the evaluation design was on the impact of changes in the mix of services offered at the Center. A second objective was to estimate the cost of each service provided to a girl. 117 pp. Bibliog.
