Student Initiated Activities: A Strategy in Youth Advocacy.
Goodman, John, Ed.
This document is divided into five parts. In Part 1, the reader is introduced to the discussions that follow by an account of the effect of school crime on school climate, and the response of the Teacher Corps and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in creating a joint program in youth advocacy to improve conditions in the schools. The second part is a discussion of the history and present status of student initiated activities in the joint program. Part 3 is coverage of the Youth Participation Conference on Student Initiated Activities, held at Oakland University in November of 1977. The topics of the conference included coverage of both youth and adult training. The fourth section presents brief accounts of both regular Job Corps projects (Activity I) and the special youth advocacy program (Activity II). The last section is made up of various responses to and perspectives on the program. (IRT)
