Boys Residential Youth Center (Effect of Innovative, Supportive Services in Changing Attitudes of "High Risk" Youth). Final Report.
Boys Residential Youth Center, New Haven, CT.
The Residential Youth Center, based in the inner city, was established to house those "high risk" youths who were not being reached by existing manpower programs. The staff consisted of indigenous, nonprofessional personnel who worked intensively with families. The project was able to effect tremendous behavioral changes in dozens of 16-21 year old male youth who were subsequently enrolled in manpower programs. (Author)
