Youth Problems and their Resolutions as Viewed by the Youth and by the Adults of Danville, Montour County, Pennsylvania.
Danville Area School District, PA.; Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Cooperative Extension Service.
A survey was conducted by the Rural Sociology Section of The Pennsylvania State University Cooperative Extension Service and the Montour County Extension Association, utilizing 323 ninth through twelfth grade in-school youth and 199 parents. Data were collected by means of a self-administered questionnaire. Three specific objectives of the survey were to help: (1) determine community needs and priorities of Danville area youth from both youth and adult viewpoints; (2) determine what, if any, suggested solutions for these perceived needs the respondents saw; and (3) provide a basis for increasing meaningful, two-way adult-youth communication in the Danville area. The data analysis is reported in two parts: the first part deals with reporting the data as they relate to the objectives, and the second part is concerned specifically with the respondents' answers related to the possible establishment and running of a Danville area Youth Center. The 32 survey findings are summarized, and tables provide the data. Appendix A contains the Youth Data and Appendix B contains the Adult Data. Copies of the questionnaires can be obtained from the Department of Rural Sociology, 204 Weaver Building, University Park, Pennsylvania 16802. (DB)
