    Learning well at work: Choices for quality. Washington DC: School-to-Work Opportunities.
    Hamilton, Mary Agnes; Hamilton, Stephen F. (ERIC Document Reproduction Service, 1997)
    This guide is written for people in workplaces and schools who plan, direct, or evaluate work-based learning opportunities for youth. The voices of both youth and adults involved in work-based learning illustrate their dilemmas, their decisions, and the impacts on their lives. The choices that determine the quality of work-based learning provide the guide's framework.

    Building strong school-to-work systems: Illustrations of key components.
    Hamilton, Stephen F.; Hamilton, Mary Agnes (Cornell University, 1999)
    The goal of creating systems that foster young people's transition to adulthood is central to the School-to-Work Opportunities Act, but difficult to translate into action. As an aid to practitioners and policy makers facing this challenge, we sought school, school districts, regional consortia, states, and corporations that were making good progress toward creating systems and described what they are doing.

    Cornell Youth and Work Program Archive
    (College of Human Ecology, 2002)
    The Cornell Youth in Society Program carries out research and outreach to understand and enhance community supports and opportunities for young people making the transition to adulthood in the United States and around the world. We are especially concerned with low-income and minority youth. Supports and opportunities of interest include work, service, schools, and mentoring relationships with adults in those and other community contexts. We are also engaged in efforts to strengthen the links between research and the practice of youth development.
