COUNTER-ATTACK ON DELINQUENCY, THE PROGRAM OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO STIMULATE COMMUNITIES TO DEVELOP RATIONAL ANSWERS TO GROWING CRISIS.
President's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime, Washington, DC.
REPORTS HAVE BEEN MADE ON HOW 16 AMERICAN COMMUNITIES ARE COMBATING DELINQUENCY WITH THE AID OF JUVENILE DELINQUENCY ACT (1961) FUNDS. EACH COMMUNITY WAS SEEKING ANSWERS TO DELINQUENCY THROUGH LOCALLY DESIGNED PROGRAMS BASED UPON A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OF ACTION INVOLVING THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY. SINCE OCCASIONAL PREVIOUS APPROACHES TO THE PROBLEM HAD NOT BEEN ADEQUATE, THE NEED WAS FOR PROGRAMS OF FUNDAMENTAL AND LASTING CHANGE. MAJOR PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WERE A PERSONNEL SHORTAGE IN YOUTH-SERVING PROFESSIONS AND AGENCIES AND A LACK OF INFORMATION EXCHANGE. EARLY INDICATIONS SHOW THAT THE CURRENT PROGRAM WARRANTS COMPLETION OF THE PROJECTS INITIATED. THE COMMUNITIES DISCUSSED INCLUDE--NEW YORK, N.Y., CLEVELAND, OHIO, NEW HAVEN, CONN., BOSTON, MASS., CHARLESTON, W. VA., HOUSTON, TEXAS, MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., PHILADELPHIA, PENN., WASHINGTON, D.C., CHICAGO, ILL., ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, SYRACUSE, N.Y., PROVIDENCE, R.I., DETROIT, MICH., LOS ANGELES AREAS, CALIF., AND LANE COUNTY, OREGON. PROGRAMS INCLUDE--WORK-STUDY ARRANGEMENTS, EMPLOYMENT CENTERS, TARGET PROJECTS, NEIGHBORHOOD CENTERS, EXPERIMENTAL NURSERY SCHOOLS, AND SUMMER JOBS.
