Report to the City of New York Department of Youth and Community Development on the Incidence of At-Risk Youth in the Orthodox Jewish Community of Brooklyn, New York

By Yohanan Danziger

Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, 1999

In February 1999, the Department of Youth and Community Development (NYCD) learned of the recent manifestation of socially unacceptable and risk behavior amongst the Orthodox Jewish community's youth. In order to scope out the problem of at-risk youth in this community and to determine its prevalence and magnitude, DYCD issued a request for proposals to perform a study. The study's goal was to assess the number of at-risk youth involved in at-risk behavior in Brooklyn, NY. This assessment involved determining the types of anti-social behavior in which at-risk youth engage, if these behaviors are leading to disenfranchisement from family and community, and appropriate intervention strategies. In addition, DYCD was interested in the pervasiveness of at -risk youth, whether this problem is limited to Brooklyn or, is more widespread.
