Youth Advocacy Training Resource. Volume II. Analysis.
Evaluation Technologies, Inc., Arlington, VA.
This volume presents an analysis of relationships among theory and research of and applications for the education of troubled youth and the specific program efforts in three Teacher Corps Youth Advocacy Projects. General issues are presented to be used as guidelines to prepare readers for individualized analysis of the case studies and the literature reviews which are contained in Volumes III and IV of this training packet. Four issues are identified as being of chief concern to the experience of participating in a Teacher Corps Youth Advocacy Project: (1) community involvement in enhancing opportunities for troubled youth; (2) the relevance of project sites to youth advocacy concerns and the establishment of continuous support systems; (3) school and alternative learning settings; and (4) correctional facilities and group homes. In each of these areas of concern, general issues are presented and are referred to both the case studies and the review of literature. In analyzing each issue area, a synthesized explanation of the underlying theories and applications which have relevance to the issue is given. Specific components and activities of the Youth Advocacy Projects which refer to these issues are discussed. The second part of this volume contains two critical reviews which suggest different areas of emphasis in issues, theoretical basis for programs, future program efforts, and further research. (JD)
