Bridgeland, John M.; Moore, Laura A.
Civic Enterprises
American children represent a great untapped potential in our country. For many young people, choices are limited and the goal of a productive adulthood is a remote one. This report paints a picture of who these children are, shares their insights and reflections about the barriers they face, and offers ways forward for Big Brothers Big Sisters as it undergoes a nationwide strategic planning process to initiate an engagement and advocacy strategy that will provide at-risk children with the tools they need to achieve success. (Contains 34 notes and a bibliography.) [This is a report by Civic Enterprises in association with Peter D. Hart Research Associates.]
