During the period under review, abcd was engaged in program elaboration and implementation, especially in conjunction with the boston youth opportunities project. It has attempted to move from hopes and ideas to tangible operations, to insure that change takes place and to design programs with sufficient clarity so that their usefulness can be fairly and honestly judged. It has also paid increasing attention to social planning in conjunction with boston's urban renewal program. The activities in pursuit of research goals have centered on--recruitment of staff, development and implementation of the evaluation designs for each program and impact design to measure the delinquency prevention effects of the total program, the obtaining and processing of school records, the development of a tracking system and the developing of other instruments required for measurement. The first four programs with the school departments of (a) prekindergarten, (b) school adjustment counseling, (c) guidance and (d) reading were begun after funds were granted from the ford foundation. Abcd was also engaged in developing four additional demonstration programs--(a) tutoring, (b) work-study, (c) ability identification and development, and (d) home-school liaison. Four summer programs of recreation and remediation were named--(a) a summer session taught by five jesuit scholastics, (b) a brandeis program held on campus for potentially able boys, (c) two summer camp programs were designed based on different philosophies. A summary of each was given including the original program design, program operations, a summary of the original evaluation design, a preliminary evaluation report and a discussion of problems.
