Many communities provide programs associated with keeping youth active in positive experiences so that they stay away from criminal behavior. Some of these involve formal co-curricular activities through schools and civic organizations and others offer after school programs. These programs are not only geared at keeping youth busy but they also provide leadership skills and mentoring opportunities.
Research what youth programs are available in your community. In a 1-2 page paper provide a brief description of your specific programs, what demographic are they geared toward, and what their purpose may be. Whose responsibility is it to provide such programs and why? Remember to use APA formatting.
