National youth administration (NYA) was a establishment in 1935 where the student work program eventually helped 2.1 million students or people ages 16-25 find jobs in school laboratories, libraries, and playgrounds; at wages ranging from a
maximum of $6 per month for secondary pupils to $30 per month for graduate students. As unemployment decreased and war approached, emphasis was gradually shifted to training youths for war work until, early in 1942, all NYA activities not contributing to the war effort were dropped. Its activities ceased late in 1943.
In 1943 the national youth administration ended because of conflict with national and political criticism
