Program Planning

Selecting Youth

Ultimately, the group of youth you select for your program depends on your partners and on the goals and outcomes you establish. During your initial planning phase, you should discuss in detail the different challenges and benefits of working with distinct populations of youth at risk. In developing your goals you will wrestle with the question of whether your program will be designed to reach at-risk youth who have not been involved with the courts or those who have already come into contact with the courts.

For for case studies, see pages 39-40 of the full chapter (in PDF format).
