This guidebook presents an overview of the Youth Advocacy Training Resource materials developed by the Teacher Corps to provide flexible training materials to assist Teacher Corps grantees to serve troubled youth. The primary target population for these materials are those Teacher Corps educational personnel who are concerned with the education of troubled youth in conventional, residential, and/or alternative secondary school settings. The first section contains an introduction to the materials, the background and purpose of their development, the contents of the other three volumes of training resource handbooks, identification of areas in which the resources will be helpful, and a description of the design of the materials. The second section deals with strategies for using the resource materials and training techniques for Teacher Corps leaders who will be presiding over Teacher Corps study groups. The final section provides general introductory information for readers who may not be familiar with the history and structure of the Teacher Corps Youth Advocacy Project. The legislative mandate is described and an introduction to the experience of participating in a Youth Advocacy Project is presented. A glossary of frequently used terms is included. (JD)
