Cross-Age Teaching
(NCJ 171688) July 1999
OJJDP Youth in Action Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
 
Describes cross-age teaching programs for youth (i.e., those that occur when youth share their skills and knowledge with persons either younger or older than they are). This Youth in Action Bulletin explains how to start a cross-age teaching program and describes how cross-age teaching may prevent or reduce crime (by, for example, helping students learn about safe behavior and become more involved in their studies). After supplying tips on how to evaluate cross-age teaching programs, the Bulletin lists organizations that youth may contact for additional information. The Bulletin's writing and format are geared to youth.
