New Arenas for Community Social Work Practice with Urban Youth: Use of the Arts, Humanities, and Sports

Synopsis

This book 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. Delgado argues that these interventions must be grounded in the community and conceptualized and implemented by the community in order for the youths to become potential community assets rather than a drain on the family and community.
