Promoting community programs for teenagers, especially those at risk, will be the goal of a nationally circulated tabloid launched next September, Youth Today.

Created by the American Youth Work Center, a Washington-based nonprofit that promotes community-based services for at-risk young people, the paper will showcase new and current programs addressing youth work concerns, and will report on events and policy formulation in the field. It will also cover such nonschool programs as youth clubs, recreation, and sports, and will track the difficulties of maintaining these services in the inner cities.

The tabloid's editors say it will feature opinion as well as news, and that its focus will be on local, state, and national developments in youth policy and program-funding. Other regular items will include information on grants and awards, book reviews, and resources for youth-services professionals.

For free copies of the bimonthly publication, contact the American Youth Work Center, 1751 N Street, N.W., Suite 302, Washington, D.C. 20036.

The ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, which publishes summaries of research on school policy and practice, has compiled 40 of its digests into a single, accessible volume.

Written for a broad audience of administrators, board members, teachers, and community leaders, the åòéã Digests feature essays on a wide range of topics including background checks on school personnel, renovating facilities, strategic planning, and drug testing. Each two-page essay condenses information on prominent issues and introduces subtopics of the subject in a question-and-answer format.

The 80-page document is available for $8.00, plus $2.50 in postage, from Publications, ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, 1787 Agate St., Eugene, Ore. 97403.

The top 25 multicultural books for children, as selected by the Boston Globe, are featured in the current issue of the paper's newsletter about children and reading, The Young Reader.

The books were chosen by the newspaper's children's-book editor, and include works for children ranging in age from 2 years to young adult. They include Mama, Do You Love Me?, by Barbara Joosse, and How My Family Lives in America, by Susan Kuklin.

For a free copy of the newsletter, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to The Young Reader, Spring '92, The Boston Globe, Public Relations Dept., P.O. Box 2378, Boston, Mass. 02107-2378.
