Promoting the Self-Sufficiency of At-Risk Youth: A Guide to Resources for Practitioners.
Brandeis Univ., Waltham, MA. Center for Human Resources.
This guide was designed to help policy makers, administrators, program planners, and managers find answers to their questions about improving the quality of their services and addressing the changing needs of young people in their communities. Information is provided on more than 100 nonprofit organizations, government agencies, research centers, national clearinghouses, and youth programs that provide information, training, and technical assistance on issues related to self-sufficiency. The organization of this directory reflects the employment and training system's new agenda, focusing on issues, programs, and strategies believed central to the task of building long-term self-sufficiency. The guide is divided into three major sections: (1) Youth Issues; (2) Systems and Program Design; and (3) Collaboration/Partnerships. Within each section, organizations are further grouped into subsections around specific issues and program strategies. The information comes from practitioners and researchers, reviews of publications, and calls to clearinghouses and public interest groups. An appendix provides brief summaries of 20 pieces of key federal legislation related to youth and self-sufficiency services. (SLD)
