Final Report on the Youth Service Agency [the City of Rock Hill, South Carolina].
Bisard, Michael W.
This final report contains an overall assessment of progress toward goals, a listing of positive and negative results, estimates of total project costs, man-years, and future, and an evaluation of the six project components for a comprehensive youth determined program in South Carolina, the Youth Service Agency. This program is said to have been established to involve youth in government and social decision-making processes in order to reduce the incidence of youth crime and delinquency and to provide employment and other self-improvements. The broad goals of the agency are said to consist of advocacy, coordination of services, and institution of new programs. Among the significant results listed are a decreased incidence of drug abuse, a raised level of youth employment, and an increased input of young persons to organizations having effect on youth. An unsuccessful resolution of the conflict between the agency's commitment to advocacy and the city's lack of desire to be associated with what were stated to be "politically sensitive" issues is listed as a negative finding or shortfall. A list of tables, exhibits, and graphs (including among others, a flow chart analysis of problems and problem causes, a summary of program approaches, and a project description) are included.
