Youth and Community: Charting Directions for Positive Youth Development. The Proceedings of a National Invitational Conference (Arlington, Virginia, March 15-17, 1978).
Kaplan, Michael H., Ed.; Galbreath, Diane, Ed.
A result of efforts to initiate dialogue between representatives of the Community Education Program in the United States Office of Education and the Department of Justice, this conference took place in March of 1978. Professionals from many youth-oriented fields attended. Conference objectives included initiating dialogue among those concerned with delinquency prevention, generating ways to engage youth in meaningful school and community activities, and designing a way to assess a community's responsibility to its youth and its ability to affect youth-related problems. The conference used a think-tank method called indicative planning. This method involves determining steps that need to be taken, identifying problems and constraints, creating proposals, and planning of tactics. Each of these components was the focus of a workshop. Results of each component of the process are presented in this publication. Twenty-four needed directions were identified. Twelve major contradiction areas were named, and many practical proposals were suggested. Finally, five tactical components were identified, and action steps were recommended. (Author/JM)
