Excerpt from Quote Magazine

November 21, 1962


Delinquency is a broad problem and demands a broad attack. Educational programs, job opportunities, recreational facilities, adult counseling — All these projects and many more must be combined in a comprehensive program if we are to make a major impact on the problem. We must show every young person, no matter how deprived his background maybe, that he has a genuine opportunity to fulfill himself and play a constructive role in American Life. We cannot solve delinquency by building new prisons. We must create new opportunities for our nation’s youth.
