Working Together for Youth: A Practical Guide for Individuals and Groups.
Information is presented to help individuals and groups translate their concerns about youth into concrete, constructive action in the community. At the heart of the guide is a step-by-step process for action. The first section deals with taking individual action, exploring ways that the individual can make a difference. The second part of the guide provides practical suggestions for gatherings of people, in groups of 2 or 200, to interpret information, share a vision, and commit to action. Change takes time, and it is necessary to realize that it will probably be 3 or 4 years before a program shows results. One of the most important decisions a group can make is to plan for early successes so that participants can demonstrate the value of working together. An annotated list of 10 resources to help in addressing youth problems is included, and this list is supplemented by an additional list of 7 resources without annotation. Sixteen worksheets are presented to help in issues clarification and planning. (SLD)
