Information Bulletin No. 2010-070
To: State Directors and Assistant Directors
Attn: State Youth Leads
From: Director, Office of the National Landscape Conservation System and Community Partnerships
Subject: Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Youth Initiative Employment Data Collection and Reporting
Purpose: The purpose of this Information Bulletin (IB) is to provide BLM State Youth Leads with a tool to track actual and projected youth employment for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 and 2011, and to request periodic reports on youth employment.
Background: The Department of the Interior (DOI) has established Bureau-specific goals for increasing youth employment in FY 2010. The goal for the BLM is to increase youth employment by 35 percent over 2009 levels. An Instruction Memorandum (IM) from Deputy Director Mike Pool provided State Directors with 2010 employment goals for each State. These goals represent a 35 percent increase over the employment numbers that the States provided to the Washington Office (WO) in a data call in August of 2009. A copy of the chart with State goals is attached.
The IM also included information on the categories of youth employment that can be counted. States are requested to track youth employment that meets the following criteria:
Action: In an effort to provide the States and the WO with a means to track progress through the year, the Division of Education, Interpretation, and Partnerships (WO-172), with the assistance of the Youth Initiative Working Group, has prepared a spreadsheet to be used for tracking actual and projected youth employment in FY 2010 and 2011. The spreadsheet is attached.
The Youth Employment tracking spreadsheet is divided into four separate sheets:
State Youth Leads are asked to coordinate with Field Offices in order to complete the spreadsheet as accurately as possible and post it on the Youth Initiative Sharepoint site by May 30, 2010. Updated reports should be completed and posted on July 15 and August 30, with a final year-end report due on October 1, 2010.
Any questions about this IB or the spreadsheet may be directed to National Youth Programs Coordinator, Betsy Wooster (Elizabeth_wooster@blm.gov; 202-912-7450).
