Abstract : The increasing importance of youth development policy, combined with an apparent willingness and desire to tap military resources and expertise to address civilian problems including those of youth, has generated mounting pressures from Congress, the Administration, and possibly the public for the Army to contribute to a national youth development plan. These pressures become stronger when they interact with a desire both inside and outside the Army to mitigate the effect of the military drawdown on individuals (by opening new job opportunities in youth development programs for early retirees) and on communities (by steering program funding to communities hardest hit by military budget reductions and base closures).
