The determination was issued on November 17, 2011. The Department’s Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on December 6, 2011 (76 FR 76186). The workers were engaged in activities related to the production of digital photography, printed proofs and digital files. The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination based on the findings that the subject firm did not import digital photography, printed proofs and digital files (or like or directly competitive articles) in 2009, 2010, or January through June 2011. Surveys of the subject firm’s major declining customers revealed no imports of digital photography, printed proofs and digital files (or like or directly competitive articles) during the relevant period. The investigation also revealed that a shift in production by the subject firm did not contribute importantly to the separations at the subject firm, and that the subject firm is neither a Supplier nor a Downstream Producer to a firm that employed a group of workers who received a certification of eligibility under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner supplied new information regarding a possible shift to/acquisition from a foreign country by the subject PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 firm in the production of articles like or directly competitive with the digital photography, printed proofs and digital files produced by the subject workers. The Department of Labor has carefully reviewed the request for reconsideration and the existing record, and has determined that the Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the petitioning worker group at the subject firm meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974. Conclusion After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted. Signed at Washington, DC, this 27th day of January 2012. Del Min Amy Chen Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.

Background The Impact Evaluation of the YouthBuild Program is a seven-year, experimental design evaluation, funded by the Department’s Employment and Training Administration and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). YouthBuild is a youth and community development program that addresses several core issues facing low-income communities: Youth education, employment, criminal behavior, social and emotional development and affordable housing. The program primarily serves high school dropouts and focuses on helping them attain a high school diploma or general educational development certificate, and teaching them construction skills geared toward career placement. The evaluation will measure core program PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6585 participant outcomes including educational attainment, postsecondary planning, employment, earnings, delinquency and involvement with the criminal justice system, and youth social and emotional development. The evaluation represents an important opportunity for DOL and CNCS to add to the growing body of knowledge about the impacts of ‘‘second chance’’ programs for youth who have dropped out of high school. Compared to peers who remain in school, high school dropouts are more likely to be disconnected from school and work, be incarcerated, be unmarried, and have children outside of marriage. The target population for the program, and correspondingly the study, is out-ofschool youth, aged 16–24, from lowincome families or in foster care and who are offenders, migrants, disabled or children of incarcerated parents. The evaluation of the YouthBuild program will address the following research questions: • Operation: How is YouthBuild designed in each participating site? What are the key implementation practices that affect how the program operates? How does the local context affect program implementation and the services available to members of the control group? • Participation: What are the characteristics of youth who enroll in the study? How are these characteristics shaped by YouthBuild recruitment and screening practices? • Impacts: What are YouthBuild’s impacts on educational attainment, planning, and aspirations? What are YouthBuild’s impacts on employment, earnings, and job characteristics? What are YouthBuild’s impacts on crime and delinquency? What are the program’s impacts on social-emotional development, identity development, and self-regulation? • Costs: How does the net cost per participant compare with the impacts the program generates? The contract to conduct an independent, rigorous evaluation was awarded in June 2010. MDRC, the prime contractor, is working with Mathematica Policy Research and Social Policy Research Associates, to design and implement the evaluation, which will continue until 2017. The evaluation consists of an implementation component, an impact component and a cost-effectiveness component. The entire universe of 2011 DOL and CNCSfunded YouthBuild grantees will participate in the implementation component of the evaluation. Of the universe of grantees, the study team will recruit 84 randomly-selected grantees E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1
