Dreams, Gangs, and Guns The Interplay between Adolescent Violence and Immigration in a New York City Neighborhood by Pedro Mateu-Gelabert( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the effect of immigration on family cohesion, specifically the relationship between parents and children. It draws on 5 years of fieldwork in one New York City immigrant community to describe how the generation gap separating immigrant adolescents from their parents, made wiser by the immigration process, leads these children to rely on violent peer groups for protection. The social development of 25 first and second generation immigrant adolescents, beginning in 7th grade is documented. Each year, observations were performed in the community and the middle school, students and parents were interviewed, and interviews in the Dominican Republic, the country of origin for most participants, were conducted. Results show that many of the parents were unprepared to guide their children through the dangers of their adopted U.S. neighborhoods, and the children therefore relied on neighborhood peers for socialization and protection. For many immigrant adolescents, adoption of violent behavior was a solution to physical threats they faced. Once they left their neighborhoods or the threats to safety disappeared, they generally ended their involvement with violent peers. (Contains 38 references.) (SM)

The 1992-1993 Evaluation of the Loan Forgiveness Program (Revised). Oer Report by Pedro Mateu-Gelabert( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Loan Forgiveness Program (lfp) was designed to recruit bilingual individuals in the following shortage areas in the New York City public schools: (1) special education; (2) school social work; (3) educational evaluation; (4) speech and hearing handicapped; (5) school psychology, guidance, and counseling; (6) physical therapy; and (7) occupational therapy. The lfp provides reimbursement of student loans to qualified bilingual individuals who have met New York State Certification requirements. Candidates, who must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, must be eligible for provisional certification and are expected to complete 10 months teaching in a designated shortage area or 12 months in year-round special education. To assess the functioning of this program, the Board of Education surveyed nine participants, most of whom had been social workers. Seven Respondents identified the financial incentive of loan repayment as a reason for joining the program, and three said it was a crucial factor. Most were satisfied with the program and all expected to be rehired. None had decided to leave the school system once the loan was paid. One third of respondents considered the amount of loan forgiven insufficient. One table summarizes repayments. (Sld)

Drug dealing and drug using behaviors among people who inject drugs in Colombia: A cross-sectional study( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: Introduction: People who inject drugs (PWID) are highly exposed to drug-dealing networks. In Colombia, a recent dramatic increase in drug consumption has been reported. However, involvement of PWID in drug dealing, their demographics, and drug using behaviors has not been studied. Methods: A cross-sectional study involving 1, 099 PWID recruited by Respondent Driven-Sampling in five Colombian cities was conducted in 2014. Correlates of demographic characteristics, drug dealing, and injection behaviors were examined by multivariate analysis, and a binary logistic regression model. Results: Drug-dealing PWID were predominantly male (86%) with a mean age of 26 years. 56% of participants--of whom 64% had low familial socioeconomic status--had been involved in drug dealing in the previous six months. Compared to non-drug-dealing PWID, drug-dealing PWID reported higher daily injection rate (AOR: 1.3), higher odds of injection equipment confiscation by the police (AOR: 1.4), and were less likely to pay for the drugs they injected (AOR: 0.6). Conclusions: Involvement of Colombian PWID in drug dealing was higher than previously reported, and drug-dealing PWID presented sociodemographic vulnerabilities and risky injection practices. Addressing these findings may lead to effective policy design and implementation, decreased drug-dealing involvement, harm reduction, and consumption prevention
