Conference on Helping America's Youth. The Conference will promote public
awareness of the various problems facing at-risk youth in our Nation, and
it will bring together policymakers, research experts, foundations, faith-
based and volunteer organizations, educators, coaches, and parents to

lives of young Americans, and to generate new ideas that can be used
across the country.
