The Effect of the 45-15 Pilot Program on Community Services in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
MacDonald, Robert H.; Anderson, Bruce
The purpose of this study was to discover the effect of the 45-15 pilot program on youth-oriented community services in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Questionnaires, telephone interviews, mail, and personal interviews were used to collect data from agencies such as parks and recreation, libraries, Little League, churches, scouting groups, music and dance studios, and the YMCA and YWCA. It was concluded that the 45-15 program does affect the youth agencies with the single exception of the YMCA and YWCA. Each of the community agencies has modified its program in some way to meet the new needs resulting from the 45-15 program. Although program adjustments have been made to accommodate problems caused by 45-15, few provisions have been made for organized activities or supervised playground facilities for children on the vacation cycle.
