Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Youth center for improving health and wellness
by DeLaney, Brandy, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 64; 1596971
Abstract (Summary)

Youth Centers play an important part in providing adolescent teens with a social and recreational venue to develop physically and expand mentally. The goal of this project is to develop a business plan related to a community based youth center in Long Beach, CA. This venue will offer services targeted towards the prevention of obesity, chronic health conditions, and mental wellness. The purpose of this plan is to propose a youth center that has programs implemented to prevent and reduce the prevalence of obesity and increase high school graduation rates that lead to secondary education programs. Emphasis will be placed on focusing programs aimed at the Black community because Long Beach lacks organizations that focus on this population.
