 SECRETARY FOLEY ANNOUNCES MODEL PROGRAM FOR YOUTH
 PHILADELPHIA, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Labor and Industry Secretary


Tom Foley today announced a model youth service corps education and training program to help young Philadelphians develop solid work habits and a commitment to serving their neighborhoods.
 "Governor Casey has directed the department to do everything possible to encourage and enable citizen service and community involvement," Foley said.
 "This new program is part of our ongoing effort to challenge young people to be good citizens and productive workers."
 Foley made his comments during a Workforce 2000 "Shoot for the Stars" briefing at West Philadelphia High School. Foley was joined by Marian Tasco, co-chair of the Workforce 2000 Advisory Council, and Carole Smith, director of the council.
 The Department of Labor and Industry will contribute $120,000 in federal discretionary funds to establish a youth service corps of young Philadelphians to complete projects that will help the homeless.
 The "Shoot for the STARS" training program is designed to assist students ages 14 to 21 in setting high academic and personal standards through educational and recreational activities.
 Fifty corps members for the new program will be selected from young people recruited by the "Shoot for the STARS" training program.
 The project is being jointly sponsored by the Department of Labor and Industry, the Philadelphia Private Industry Council (PIC) and Workforce 2000.
 The program will run from July 1 through September 1993.
