Building Education into Youth Services.
Myers, Robert M.; And Others
Human Needs, v1 n3 Sep 72
This collection of articles shows how different forms of education can be combined with the various youth services offered by public and private agencies. It outlines the administrative arrangements made in different cities in efforts to deliver counseling and related services to various populations such as pregnant teenagers, emotionally disturbed public school children, mothers, and residents of group homes. The material should be useful to anyone concerned with coordinating either human services or educational programs. Where appropriate, the articles list goals of the programs, entrance criteria, amounts and sources of funding, and forms of evaluation. In many cases the history of the program is described, including ways to facilitate cooperation among formerly isolated agencies. The articles provide proof that such coordinated services can be successful, details on how they have been organized, and ideas for how similar programs might be carried out in other cities. (BP)
