Community Based Rehabilitation Services for Youthful Offenders in Rural Areas. Special Report.
Dunn, Dennis J.; Korn, Thomas A.
A model program for providing vocational rehabilitation services to rural youthful offenders was developed and a demonstration project using the model program conducted. Twelve youthful offenders referred by the local correctional personnel were served. The results of the demonstration project indicated that the overall program was most effective with youthful offenders who were in school at the time of referral. The vocational exploration and evaluation program component was shown to attain specified goals for identification of immediate and future vocational goals and service needs, but to be less effective in attaining specified goals for client awareness. Obtaining necessary services for youthful offenders using community agencies proved to be a problem for a variety of reasons. In particular the vocational counseling and vocational skill training service needs remained unmet. Based upon the experience from the demonstration program a revised program for service was developed. (Author)
