Delivering Youth Services in Philadelphia

April 22, 2008

The Fels Institute of Government recently released a report titled “Delivering Youth Services in Philadelphia: The Integrated Youth Services Project.”

According to the report:

Youth services in Philadelphia, including out-of-school time programs, community
based prevention efforts, youth development programs and programs for older
out-of school youth have grown enormously over the past decade. The result,
however, has not been a coherent system that effectively meets the needs of
youth, their families and their communities. Instead, it has been a patchwork of
networks and clusters of programs, some of them apparently successful, but
often disconnected and difficult to evaluate. In some case the members and
boundaries are clear; in others they are not.
