Summary "In cities and towns throughout the United States, young people are initiating and operating such constructive school and community activities as: preparing resource materials for their schools, dramatizing the dangers of alcohol abuse to elementary school children, tutoring non-English-speaking youngsters, earning high school credits by working with public service agencies, operating community business enterprises, inspecting buildings and informing tenants of their legal rights, painting wall murals to beautify slum streets, [and] counseling runaways and other troubled adolescents. These projects and dozens of others in which young people are involved with community agencies, foundations, and local governments are described in this often inspiring volume. You'll find out they began, how they are organized, how they are integrated into the curriculum, how they are financed, how participants are trained, and many other operational details. Gleaned from the voluminous files of the National Commission on Resources for Youth, these examples demonstrate again and again that young people, when given an opportunity and reasonable support, can be resourceful, dedicated, hard working, and capable. Counselors, teachers, principals, school board members, social workers, business people, and government officials -- all who are interested in the concerns of today's youth -- will find ideas and practical advice on initiating a project or adapting one of these to their own situation. And young people themselves will find suggestions for implementing curricular and extracurricular projects they wish to undertake." -- Back cover.
