THE FIRST FIVE YEARS.
DEUTSCHER, IRWIN; AND OTHERS
THE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER, BEGUN IN 1958, CONSISTS OF SCHOLARS WHO ARE WORKING TOGETHER ON THE PROBLEMS FACED BY YOUNG PEOPLE GROWING UP IN A CITY, AND WHO ARE SEEKING WAYS TO ELIMINATE OR REDUCE THOSE PROBLEMS. THE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER IS A RESEARCH-EDUCATION-DEMONSTRATION ORGANIZATION WHOSE RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT GAINING A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF PATTERNS OF GROWING UP AND OF PROCESSES RELATED TO DELINQUENT CAREERS. THE CENTER REALIZES THAT THE URBAN PROBLEM OF HIGH RATES OF DELINQUENCY IS INEXTRICABLY TIED TO URBAN PROBLEMS OF POVERTY, DEPENDENCY, AND RACE. RESEARCH DONE DURING THE YEARS 1958-1963 ENABLED THE STAFF TO LEARN ABOUT DELINQUENT BEHAVIOR, FAMILY STRUCTURE, MOBILITY PATTERNS AND FAMILY GOALS, SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND WORK OPPORTUNITIES, HOUSING, COURT PROCEDURES, SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS, PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT, AND THE MEANING OF POVERTY. DURING THE COMING YEARS, THE CENTER IS HOPEFUL THAT THE EVIDENCE AVAILABLE FROM CURRENT STUDIES WILL BE INFLUENCING--THE LOCATION, DESIGN AND ADMINISTRATION OF PUBLIC HOUSING POLICIES, THE POLICIES OF URBAN RENEWAL, THE STRUCTURE OF SCHOOL CLASSROOM GROUPINGS, THE FOCUS OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR THE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED AND VOCATIONALLY HANDICAPPED, AND THE ORGANIZATION OF LOWER-CLASS COMMUNITY LIFE. A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF STAFF WRITINGS IS PRESENTED AND SOURCES OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE CENTER ARE SHOWN.
