Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Economic and Youth Opportunities Agency of Greater Los Angeles records contain reports, minutes, and memorandums that document some of the activities of this agency between 1964 and 1970, specifically the administration of Head Start programs and the Teen-Post program. The collection also contains reports produced by the Agency.
The Youth Opportunities Board (YOB) was established in Los Angeles County in 1962--as a Joint Powers agency incorporating school, probation, and social services--to address high levels of both juvenile delinquency and unemployment among out-of-school youth. Three volumes of a 1963 YOB proposal, in the collection, to remedy "youth failure" in South Central Los Angeles, reflect a then typical approach to multiple problems in impoverished communities.
