Youth Development Program Models: A Technical Assistance Pamphlet.
Office of Economic Opportunity, Washington, DC.
The publication contains descriptions of 20 Office of Economic Opportunity Youth Development Programs (YDPs). The program models represent a cross-section of program emphases. Many involve multiple program or project areas which is characteristic of the YDP. As illustrated by the models, one of the basic aspects of the YDPs is that of coordinating and mobilizing resources and community support for the programs. Each program description lists the following: name of the program, name and telephone number of a contact person, the Community Action Agency (CAA) associated with the program, and the program emphasis. Information in paragraph form is provided under five main sections for each program: problems addressed by the program, program goals, background, program organization (description of youth councils and structure of the program) and financial and human resources. Additional information (financial statements, organizational charts, and program forms) is included for some of the programs. (Author/MS)
