Youth Service Bureaus and Delinquency Prevention.
Youth Development and Delinquency Prevention Administration (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This pamphlet presents a model for the establishment of a Youth Service Bureau (YSB) in response to recommendations set forth in the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice (1967). Objectives of a YSB are the prevention of juvenile delinquency and the diversion of youths from the juvenile justice system. To meet these objectives, a YSB must tailor its organization and program to meet local conditions in the light of the state of the development of youth services in the community. The pamphlet offers suggestions for organizing a YSB, the auspices under which it may operate, the services it should provide, the functions of advisory groups, staffing, funding, relationships to other community agencies, potential legal problems and program evaluation methods. Excerpts from several conferences and documents pertaining to youth are included in the appendixes. (Author/CJ)
