The report describes Aunt Martha's Youth Service Center (IL), a multipurpose agency which focuses on the needs of adolescents. Founded in 1968, the agency now (1978) has a staff of 40, a 21 member board of directors, 199 volunteers, 28 foster parents, and serves a 15 township region. The goals of the program are to increase opportunities for young people to develop as productive, positively involved community residents and to create and maintain volunteer and paid assignments for youth. Among services provided for youth are a walk-in counseling center, a teen health clinic, a youth employment training program, and a speakers' bureau. An evaluation is underway to consider the agency as a whole. Among appendixes are volunteer training materials, information on budget and sources of revenue, and literature on Aunt Martha's. (PHR)
