Selected Annotated Bibliography on Youth and Gang Violence Prevention, Community Team Organizing and Training, and Cultural Awareness Curricula [open pdf - 923KB]
"This document has been prepared as a resource for youth-serving organizations and individuals, researchers, and policymakers concerned with youth issues. In their efforts to deal proactively with youth violence, gangs, and drug involvement-and to address the opportunities and challenges of collaborating with diverse communities to enhance youth development-many hard-working groups and individuals find that they lack the time to stay current on important literature in their fields. This annotated bibliography deals with this dilemma by providing brief summaries of materials ranging from reports and monographs to curricula, training manuals, articles, and other literature and products. The topics covered in this bibliography reflect the wide array of issues facing youthserving groups and professionals. The original impetus for the creation of this document was a set of expert meetings held in the spring and summer of 1993 to develop a guide to building and training community-based violence prevention teams. Participants in those meetings suggested that a multi-topic, annotated bibliography would meet the diverse informational needs of a broad spectrum of concerned parties."
