Lee); (3) "From Deterrence to Development: Shifting the Focus of Youth Programs for African-American Males" (Karen Johnson Pittman and Shepherd Zeldin); (4) "How Professionals in Community-Based Programs Perceive and Respond to the Needs of Black Male Youth" (Ronald F.

Jeff, Jr.); (6) "Traditional Youth Service Systems and Their Work with Young Black Males" (Jane Quinn); (7)"Toward a National Youth Development Policy for Young African-American Males: the Choices Policymakers Face" (Andrew B. Hahn); and (8) "Conclusions and Implications" (Ronald B. Mincy). Appendix A by Susan J. Wiener is titled, "Funding Youth Development Programs for Young Black Males: The Little We Know."
