Serving At-Risk Teens (book)

Craig, A. & McDowell, C.L. (2013). Serving At-Risk Teens: Proven Strategies and Programs for Bridging the Gap. Chicago, IL: Neal-Schuman.

Working with at-risk teens is a rewarding and often challenging endeavor. You know there’s a need for library services that specifically reach this underserved population, but you don’t have the background information, administrative support, or the right resources at your disposal to get the job done. Based on best practices, practical suggestions and personal experiences from many leaders in the field today, Library Services for At-Risk-Teens: Bridging the Gap connects you with accessible and affordable programming ideas and ready-to-use templates, techniques, and tools to help you better serve this population, including teens who are homeless, incarcerated, or in foster care. You’ll also learn how to gain support from library administration and community leaders as well as build meaningful relationships with the facilities designed to care for these disconnected youth. 

This newest addition to the Teens @ the Library series will provide you with the resources you need to successfully serve disconnected youth in your community. (book description)
