Description
Many recent books have focused on urban youth as a troubled population in tremendous need with few if any advantages. Here at last is a book that urges professionals who work with urban youth to develop or rediscover innovative, capacity-enhancing, community-based approaches for engaging young people in activities that systematically build on their talents and energy. These interventions must be grounded in the community and conceptualized and implemented by the community in order that the youths will become community assets rather than a drain on the family and community.

The book demonstrates the potential of after-school activities, ranging from sports to the visual and performing arts and the humanities, from music and dance to writing and photography, to transform young lives. Case studies of exemplary organizations and innovative communities in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Hollywood (California), and Jonesboro (Georgia) round out the work.
