ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
 
The Brandeis University study team would like to thank the many individuals whocontributed to the development and completion of this study and report.Staff at the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, inWashington, DC provided valuable input and guidance throughout the duration of this study.We especially appreciate the support and advice of Ray Uhalde, Senior Advisor at the timethe study was designed; Wayne Gordon, from the Office of Policy Development, Evaluationand Research; and Gregg Weltz, Evan Rosenberg, Sara Hastings, and Charles Modiano fromthe Division of Youth Services. They provided valuable input and support from the verystart of the study through a series of briefings and critical review of the findings and earlierdrafts.Most importantly, this study would not have been possible without the commitment andgenerosity of leadership teams, staff members, employers, and youth practitioners whoparticipated in the four featured communities. They took the time to share theirexperiences and respond to requests for information during a period of intense activity anddemands from many stakeholders in the workforce investment community. Keystakeholders from the communities also took the time to review early drafts of the casestudies and hosted and/or participated in formal briefings at Youth Summits in Chicago,Dallas, and Detroit.Contributors from the four featured communities are acknowledged in each case study.
