Changing Perspectives: Youth as Resources.
This report summarizes the efforts and successes of the Youth as Resources (YAR) initiative, a program that offers youth empowerment and leadership in community service. It utilizes all youth in an effort to address any social or community issue deemed important to a local area and provides opportunities for a wide range of agencies to host or to benefit from youth service projects. Part 1 of the report details the development and grounding of the YAR concept, as well as its impact on youth policy. It then outlines how the program came to Indiana, and provides an overall view of how the idea fared in practice. Part 2 offers some conclusions and lessons from these experiences and suggests ways to bring the benefits of the YAR concept to other communities. Part 3 presents stories of actual programs in each of the cities, including the evaluations of local projects. An appendix contains YAR program evaluation interview questions and surveys. (GLR)
