|Designing Quality Youth Programs contains information learned from camp directors who wanted to make their programs a better place for their young people. Built on eight steps, including asking for input from the youth and your staff, assessing and brainstorming strategies, choosing an action plan and implementing it, and then sharing and evaluating what has been accomplished. this process is designed to be individualized: to draw upon and fit your mission and philosophy, to reflect input from your young people and staff, and to implement strategies that make sense for your program. The appendices included at the end of this book contain a multitude of forms and lists to help in designing quality youth programs.
Also included is a CD-Rom with program-ready adaptable worksheets.
