SUGGESTIONS FOR TRAINING PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH DELINQUENTS AND POTENTIAL DELINQUENTS ARE GIVEN. THESE PEOPLE INCLUDED GANG WORKERS, SOCIAL WORKERS, TEACHERS, POLICEMEN, PROBATION AND PAROLE OFFICERS, CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION PERSONNEL, AND GUIDANCE COUNSELORS. THE PROGRAM WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS--SHORT-TERM WORKSHOPS AND INSTITUTES, UNIVERSITY TRAINING CENTERS, AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. SHORT-TERM PROJECTS INCLUDED WORK IN THE STREETS, EDUCATION OF PROBLEM STUDENTS, AND ACCREDITED COLLEGE COURSE OF FIELD WORK AT THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT, CREATION OF NEIGHBORHOOD TEAMS OF POLICE, PROBATION OFFICERS, TEACHERS, SOCIAL WORKERS, AND OTHERS, UPGRADING CORRECTIONAL PERSONNEL, AND RURAL YOUTH PROGRAMS. THE UNIVERSITY TRAINING CENTERS WERE THE CORE OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM. THEY WERE TO BE PERMANENT TRAINING BASES WHERE A WIDE VARIETY OF YOUTH WORKERS COULD RECEIVE IMAGINATIVE, INTERDISCIPLINARY TRAINING. MOST INSTRUCTION WAS SPECIALIZATION IN THE TRAINEE'S OWN FIELD. THE PROGRAMS AT THE TEN DIFFERENT CENTERS VARIED ACCORDING TO PARTICULAR NEEDS. THE CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT THAT WOULD BE USED AT THE TRAINING CENTERS INCLUDED SUCH SUBJECTS AS POLICE AND DELINQUENCY, PROMISCUOUS TEENAGE GIRLS, TEACHING OF SLUM CHILDREN, A REHABILITATION PROGRAM FOR JUVENILE DELINQUENTS, COLLEGE VOLUNTEERS FOR SLUM WORK, AND UTILIZATION OF PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEERS WHO HAD SPENT 2 YEARS TEACHING OVERSEAS.
