This first attempt to list child advocacy programs reflects the great variety and richness of advocacy efforts throughout the nation on behalf of children and youth. The listing includes strictly defined advocacy programs--both direct service, and planning and coordinating programs, as well as other services offered by agencies without defined advocacy programs. There is considerable fusion of advocacy activity with other direct services to individuals. Descriptions of program purposes, activities and other pertinent information are listed by states and regions. One index lists programs by their current emphases: adolescent parenthood, bilingual-bicultural advocacy, child welfare, developmental disabilities, juvenile delinquency. Native Americans, public education and recreation. A second index lists them by their current activities: legal action and assistance, legislative action, consultative services, research, maintaining responsive grievance procedures for students and community involvement.
