Adolescent Parenthood. Developing A Comprehensive Community Planning Guide around the Issue of Teenage Pregnancy.
DeJong, William; And Others
For individuals or groups interested in developing a comprehensive community plan to address the problems of teenage pregnancy and parenthood, this paper provides a process built around a community diagnostic conference, for mobilizing local decision makers. The process is divided into these six phases, which are discussed separately: (1) initiation of planning process; (2) information collection; (3) conference planning; (4) preparation for the diagnostic conference; (5) conducting the conference; and (6) follow-up activities (information dissemination, media release, and implementation of the plan). The process described includes technical assistance provided through a Charles Stewart Mott Foundation grant, and information is given on acquiring assistance from other sources. Sample process forms and a sample budget are also included. (KH)
