The Training and Research Institute for Residential Youth Centers, Inc. (TRI-RYC). Final Report, 1969-1970.
Training and Research Inst. for Residential Youth Centers, Inc., New Haven, CT.
This report describes and details the experiences of the Training and Research Institute for Residential Youth Centers (TRI-RYC) during its first year of operation. The TRI-RYC was established by the Department of Labor, Office of Special Manpower Programs, to provide a capability for initiating, training staff for, and evaluating the effectiveness of five new residential-support facilities based on the Residential Youth Center model developed in New Haven, Connecticut. The field-testing of this model was done in Flint, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; Trenton, New Jersey; Boston, Massachusetts and Bridgeport, Connecticut. This report describes the results of this attempt to replicate the RYC model in the above cities. Attention is focused on the neighborhood-based residential model in terms of its staffing pattern, orientation toward client service, in-service training procedures and internal organization. In addition, the history of the development of the TRI-RYC is summarized and implications drawn for the future development of residential programs as support-facilities to high risk youth involved in manpower training. A related Training Manual is available in this issue as VT 013 464. (Author)
