2012 Albert M. Greenfield Memorial Lecture

Challenged Youth and Challenged Public Services:
Putting Integrated Systems to USE

Tuesday, May 8, 2012
4:00pm - 5:30pm

Keynote Speaker:
Dennis Culhane, The Dana and Andrew Stone Professor of Social Policy

Anne Marie Ambrose, Commissioner, Department of Human Services
Robert G. Schwartz, Executive Director, Juvenile Law Center

John Fantuzzo, Albert M. Greenfield Professor of Human Relations

This presentation will identify the prevalence of youth involvement in multiple public service agencies in Philadelphia (for example, truancy, homelessness, child welfare, juvenile justice, and mental health). Working with youth in multiple systems requires the development of more complex services across systems. The presentation will highlight some strategic opportunities for integrative services for youth.

The Multi-system Youth Project was initiated and funded by the Stoneleigh Foundation.

The Albert M. Greenfield Memorial Lecture is sponsored by the Albert M. Greenfield Foundation. The foundation supports activities that carry on the humanitarian vision of the late Mr. Greenfield, who chaired the board of Bankers Securities Corporation and the Philadelphia Planning Commission.
