Abstract

This paper examines the role a community-based organization has in locating at-risk adolescents in urban communities. Research has focused attention on violence among Black adolescents because of their exposure of violence in at-risk neighborhoods and the negative impact it has on victims and the community. Though helpful, very little information is known on the impact community-based organizations has on the quality of lives and behaviors of adolescents from at-risk neighborhoods. Policy implications are suggested to increase the rate of community participation in community-based research.
