Opportunities for the Nineties: Idaho's Ten Year Plan for Children and Youth.
Idaho Commission for Children and Youth, Boise.
This 10-year plan, prepared by the Idaho Commission for Children and Youth addresses the needs of children and youth living in the state of Idaho during the 1990s. The Commission intends to use the plan as a blueprint for its own activities and as a reference point for collaborating with other agencies and organizations in their efforts throughout the state. The 11 areas of concern selected for attention by the Commission are: system coordination, juvenile justice, prenatal care, child health care, basic needs, preventing hunger and homelessness, families and parenting, child abuse, child care, education, substance abuse, and teenage pregnancy. Each area is introduced by a discussion of the needs and problems, indicating why the Commission selected it for attention. The discussion references other, specialized sources of information. The discussion of each area lists key resources being used to address the need and those resources which have potential to help and might be developed. The reader is referred to other sources for additional information. A goal is stated for each area. Several objectives follow each goal. The objectives are the steps to be taken toward attaining the goal. Each has a time frame for accomplishment set within the 10-year period. Suggested strategies and a list of lead agencies and organizations follow each objective. (LLL)
