- Abstract in English : Including teens’ needs in the planning and maintenance of urban open space suggests new methods of layering utility and maximizing benefit to teens and community. Berkeley Youth Alternatives offers two programs that attract youth through employment, and as a result provide at-risk teens with income, job-training, safe after-school activity and self-esteem.
