Program for Youth and Community Studies. Final Report.
Staten Island Community Coll., NY.; State Univ. of New York, Stony Brook.
The Youth and Community Services Program was designed for the education of human services professionals and paraprofessionals. Two parallel programs were implemented in 1973--a two-year program at Staten Island Community College and a four-year program at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. At Staten Island, the curriculum involved three components: field work in community institutions; classroom courses in theory, urban institutions, and basic skills development and training; and independent study. The program was offered on-campus and at three off-campus sites. This document compiles the final report of the Staten Island program, an evaluation of the Staten Island program by an outside evaluator, and the final report of the Stony Brook program. Fiscal and institutional problems in the implementation of non-traditional programs are reviewed and final recommendations are presented. (RT)
