Creating Youth Leaders: Community Supports

In order to maximize the effectiveness of prevention and intervention efforts with youth and address the needs of the whole student, it is necessary to work not only directly with youth, but also to partner with other key adults in a young person's life: parents and guardians, teachers, after-school staff, and clinicians. Inherent in RALLY's philosophy is a dual strategy of working intensively with students and teachers in the school while creating partnerships that bring students' families and a network of community agencies into the school as well. These partnerships bring important resources to school communities and create richer opportunities for young people and their families. Furthermore, a key to working effectively with youth lies in providing them not only with services that match their needs and interests, but also opportunities for participation and empowerment. Such opportunities can result in significant individual change in the students involved in these opportunities as well as broader community. (Contains 6 notes.)
