Transition, v26 n1 Mar 1996
This issue of the Canadian quarterly "Transitions," in French and English language versions, examines the prevention of youth crime, with a specific focus on activities, trends, and research dealing with Canadian families. Major articles in this issue are: (1) "A Snowball's Chance? Communities and Families Working to Prevent Youth Crime," which presents views from several key members of the National Crime Prevention Council on creating prevention programs that work, profiles of community success stories from across Canada, and a page of little-known facts on youth crime; (2) "Bailing Out on Future Generations," in which Dr. Robert Glossop argues that cutbacks in social programs are endangering the prospects of the next generation; and (3) "Working without a (Social Safety) Net," in which Ellen Adelberg talks with researchers Paul Reed and Michael Hall about the effects of government downsizing and downloading in education and social program spending on voluntary organizations. Other brief articles and columns discuss the increase in the availability of temporary jobs, the sponsoring of the Children's Choice Award for TV programs, and information and resources on current family issues in Canada.
