Background The proposed reinstatement with change of information collection is for an evaluation of the YPDP. The YPDP is sponsored by ETA to test innovative strategies that can improve the skills and education of young parents and, ultimately their employment and earnings. The YPDP grantees are required to develop a ‘‘bump-up’’ intervention providing an additional level of services above and beyond the existing services currently provided that are specifically intended to increase an individual’s education, job training and employment. A key factor in the bumpup design is having a single, persistent intervention for the treatment group that is substantially different from what the control group receives. Each of the grantees is implementing one of the following two bump-up interventions: • Mentoring Models—Intensive professional staff mentoring specifically for education, employment, and training; and specifically for pregnant and parenting teens and young parents; or • Employment/Education/Training Models—Guided employment, education, training and related supports specifically for pregnant and parenting teens and young parents. Individuals enrolling in YPDP have a 50/50 chance of receiving this additional level of services. Those individuals not receiving the bump-up services receive the existing services offered by the grantee. To evaluate the YPDP bump-up interventions, we will compare the PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39161 education, employment, and other outcomes for the two groups over various points in time. The evaluation will estimate the success in providing educational and occupational skills training that fosters family economic self-sufficiency to young parents (both mothers and fathers) and expectant parents ages 16–24. II. Review Focus The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The proposed reinstatement with change of information collection is 
for an evaluation of the YPDP. The YPDP is sponsored by ETA to test 
innovative strategies that can improve the skills and education of 
young parents and, ultimately their employment and earnings.
    The YPDP grantees are required to develop a ``bump-up'' 
intervention providing an additional level of services above and beyond 
the existing services currently provided that are specifically intended 
to increase an individual's education, job training and employment. A 
key factor in the bump-up design is having a single, persistent 
intervention for the treatment group that is substantially different 
from what the control group receives. Each of the grantees is 
implementing one of the following two bump-up interventions:
     Mentoring Models--Intensive professional staff mentoring 
specifically for education, employment, and training; and specifically 
for pregnant and parenting teens and young parents; or
     Employment/Education/Training Models--Guided employment, 
education, training and related supports specifically for pregnant and 
parenting teens and young parents.
    Individuals enrolling in YPDP have a 50/50 chance of receiving this 
additional level of services. Those individuals not receiving the bump-
up services receive the existing services offered by the grantee.
    To evaluate the YPDP bump-up interventions, we will compare the 
education, employment, and other outcomes for the two groups over 
various points in time. The evaluation will estimate the success in 
providing educational and occupational skills training that fosters 
family economic self-sufficiency to young parents (both mothers and 
fathers) and expectant parents ages 16-24.

II. Review Focus

    The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments 
which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
