McAvey, Kevin C. 2009. "Reaching Out: Youth and Family Participation." Issue brief, Linking Child Care and Economic Development Project. Ithaca, NY: Department of City and Regional Planning, Cornell University.

Parents and children hold unique and valuable information about a community that is unlikely to be ascertained elsewhere. This brief discusses methods of increasing parental and youth engagement.
