Evaluation of the Chinatown Youth Services and Coordinating Center.
Krisberg, Barry; Takagi, Paul
This report on the Chinatown Youth Services and Coordinating Center (CYSCC) presents a short-term evaluation of the delinquency prevention program operating in San Francisco's Chinatown. Research problems bearing on the evaluation were said to be the lack of concensus among all interviewed (every permanent member of the staff of CYSCC) as to the goals or aims of CYSCC and the inability to examine the perspectives of the various clients of the CYSCC program because of the limited resources and short-term research orientation. Research findings, organized within four broad categories felt to be important in understanding the activities of CYSCC and discussed in relation to the activities and functions of CYSCC, are as follows: Nature and scope of the delinquency problems in the Chinatown community, the explicit and implicit goals of CYSCC, the viability of the youth services bureau model for delinquency prevention in Chinatown, and relationships between various components of the CYSCC Program and between the program and outside agencies. Two specific recommendations stemming from the research conclusions were made: (1) the establishment of an executive committee of CYSCC to allocate, fund, program, staff, and delegate rights and privileges across staff positions, and (2) a reorganization of the staff activities of CYSCC.
