Schwartz, Henrietta; Schwartz, Bernard S.
This report documents the successful coordination of two agencies, the Teacher Corps of the Office of Education (Department of Health, Education, and Welfare) and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention of the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (Department of Justice), in the establishment of a joint program, the School Crime Intervention Component (Activity II) of the Teacher Corps Youth Advocacy Program. The report traces the historical development of the agreement and examines the program in order to make recommendations for future interagency collaboration. The methodology includes comparisons of the needs of the two parent agencies, use of a transactional model for analyzing the program's functioning, and examination of the organizational subculture of the program through the use of interviews, observations, and other information gathering methods.
