Introduced  by  Sen.  MONTGOMERY  -- read twice and ordered printed, and

AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to  enacting  the  "New  York
  state  YouthBuild  act"; setting program requirements; authorizing the
  commissioner of labor to make grants to eligible  YouthBuild  programs
  and to establish application requirements; and expanding the number of
  YouthBuild programs in New York state

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "New York state YouthBuild act".
  § 2. Legislative intent. The legislature seeks to support economically
disadvantaged youth, especially youth who have not finished high school,
to obtain the education, work experience skills training, personal coun-
seling,  leadership  development  skills training, job placement assist-
ance, and long-term follow-up services necessary  for  them  to  achieve
permanent  economic  self-sufficiency,  while at the same time providing
valuable community service that addresses urgent community needs includ-
ing the demand for affordable housing and the need for young role models
and mentors for younger teenagers and children.
  The legislature further intends to foster the development  of  leader-
ship skills and a commitment to community development among youth and to
ensure  maximum  educational achievement of program participants through
high school diploma or  the  equivalent  attainment  and  transition  to
institutions of higher education, where appropriate.
  The legislature further intends to provide communities the opportunity
to establish or rebuild neighborhood stability in economically depressed
and low-income areas, as well as historic areas requiring restoration or
preservation, while providing economically disadvantaged youth and youth
who  have  not  finished  high  school  an  opportunity for a meaningful
participation in society.
