YES Shelter for Youth and Families: Communication Protocols Part 2
The aim of the present project was to identify the questions or ambiguities that concern the staff members of the YES Shelter for Youth and Families regarding the sharing of personal information of youth clients with law enforcement agencies. To accomplish this, the relationship between homeless youth and the criminal justice system was initially researched through journal articles within the past five years to determine why homelessness can lead to criminal behaviour and why homeless youth potentially receive more attention from police. Current policies and procedures from the YES Shelter were also reviewed for ambiguities when sharing information with law enforcement. Survey question were administered to YES staff regarding the release of client information when communicating with police and probation officers. Research through a literature review identified numerous factors leading to homeless youth becoming involved in criminality, such as drug use. In addition, homeless youth often receive extensive attention from police whether they are criminally involved or not, because they are often socially profiled as “dangerous” by the public. Survey responses from YES staff showed a high and consistent level of confidence when releasing client information to the police; however the confidence level when sharing client information with probation officers was low and inconsistent. Overall, youth clients at the YES Shelter felt that their privacy was secured and protected. The research gathered from the present project aims to help the YES Shelter create privacy policies for their staff. Lastly, a list of recommendations was suggested for future research., By Luxi Zhuang, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: YES Shelter for Youth and Families; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC 4080Y - Community-Based Research Project

Green enterprises in Peterborough County
From an environmental perspective, the essential importance of community economic development is its ability to move communities toward self-reliance. That, in turn, will result in much more efficient use of local natural and secondary resources as people connect with their surrounding environmental and understand the importance of persevering local resources for he needs of future generations within their own community. Though formulations of the sustainable community economic development (SCED) concept vary, most include environmental sustainability as a central component. Green enterprise is able to integrate this aspect of SCED into both its processes and the products it generates. Green Enterprise can play an educational role, providing an example of environmental responsibility and showing that this responsibility can support successful business. It can also provide the community with increase choice about the types of goods and services it consumes, increasing local empowerment., Introduction -- Revised study plan.
