Document date: July 01, 1995
Released online: July 01, 1995
This document reports on a study designed to build knowledge about community-based programs that serve African American male youth. The study included case studies of 51 programs in 10 U.S. cities as well as responses to a survey sent to 282 programs. Based on this data, the authors distill lessons from the programs: they cover "what kids need", "Promising Program Components", and "Underlying Philosophies on Program Design". They also offer detailed descriptions on the barriers programs face. Appendices include the Mail Survey Instrument used, descriptions of the Site Visit Programs, and a list of site visit contacts and addresses.
