(p.42) 3 Conditions for Youth in San Francisco and Oakland
Between Movement and Establishment
Stanford University Press

This chapter looks at the salient demographic and political features of San Francisco and Oakland as a background for examining the community-level structure of organizations supporting youth. First, it examines the state level to better understand the policy climate and advocacy activity with respect to youth, as both organization populations in this study share the context of California. The chapter suggests that California has experienced a policy displacement from the state to local communities, with few significant statewide policy achievements to improve programs and services for youth.

Keywords:   youth support, San Francisco demographics, Oakland demographics, policy climate, advocacy activity
