The materials included in this document were prepared for the inservice training of Adoption Site personnel by the staff of Project Focus, a Developer/Demonstration site funded by the U.S. Office of Education under Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III. The document is designed to be used as a complete Training Manual. During the past three years, 1971-74, the Focus program as part of the Roseville Youth Development Project has directed its attention and efforts toward the identification and alteration of those features of a suburban school system that impede and obstruct positive youth development. The program has developed, implemented, evaluated, and disseminated strategies designed: (1) to provide socially acceptable and personally gratifying roles for all youth, particularly those most prone to the development of delinquency patterns and criminal careers; (2) to reduce student feelings of alienation, rejection, and powerlessness, (3) to provide appropriate success oriented learning alternatives; (4) to provide alternatives within the context of a public school system that improve the institutional services to adjudicated delinquents; and, (5) to recommend changes in school policies and procedures to reduce disaffection throughout the system.
