Overview of Being Young and Homeless: Understanding How Youth Enter and Exit Street Life (Adolescent Cultures, School and Society Series. Vol. 30)

Being Young and Homeless is an intimate portrayal of life on the street from the perspective of young people in Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, and Guatemala City. Jeff Karabanow portrays street youth experiences in various locales, highlighting reasons for entering street life, struggles to survive on the street, encounters with service providers, and for some, the street exiting process. This book is relevant for students and practitioners of social work, sociology, social administration, and public policy.

Synopsis of Being Young and Homeless: Understanding How Youth Enter and Exit Street Life (Adolescent Cultures, School and Society Series. Vol. 30)

Karabanow (social work, Dalhousie U.) examines street life for youth in Canada and Guatemala, how they enter it, what they do to survive and why they stay, how they view services meant to help them, and the process, not the event, that takes them off the street. Writing for professionals and students in social work, he traces the history of street life in the West, the etiology of street youth, the building of identity in the culture, and the complex and fragile relationships helping organizations have with the young people they intend to serve.
