Summary

The purpose of this study was to explore several urban field sites where youth programs are achieving some notoriety and to identify some factors contributing to success. A survey of literature on program development for urban areas was also included. It was hoped that such a search would reveal composites of common elements which would be helpful to professionals who are planning informal educational programs for urban areas. Several points to be considered for a successful urban youth program were: (1) to involve the community, (2) to be responsive to differences of attitude and culture of the participants, (3) to train volunteers, (4) to develop resources, and (5) to show changes in the lives of participants. The author points to many questions left unanswered by the study and suggests further research. (Author/PC)
