Summary
Young people who live in environments or engage in behaviors that put them "at risk," either for violence, substance abuse, school dropout, or pregnancy, often suffer from a lack of adequate supports. This book explores the challenges involved in creating and sustaining supportive communities for at-risk 10-15 yr olds. Case studies of 9 programs that serve youth and their families are provided.
