East Chicago Junior Police: An Effective Project in the Non-Academic Area of the School's Total Educational Attack on the Disadvantagement of Youth.
East Chicago City School District, IN.
The Junior Police program utilized non-academic youth interests as its foundation. The project filled the need for a youth organization, a youth clearinghouse, and more aid to delinquent and predelinquent youth to redirect them into ways of thinking and acting beneficial both to themselves and to the community. The objectives of the program were to provide supplemental effort in attacking conditions which interfere with a child's educational growth--those conditions being underachievement, social, cultural, and nutritional disadvantagement, and health deficiencies. Program areas included were music, arts and crafts, sports, health, cosmotology, business, hobbies, field trips, and parties. Both professionals and volunteers comprised the staff including members of the East Chicago police and fire departments. Those working with the program submit that the Junior Police members have been involved in fewer incidents of delinquency than non-members. (Author/CB)
