At-risk-Youth. Child abuse and neglect by parents, domestic violence, lack of formal and informal education, physical and emotional abuse, lack of sexual training, immoral music and other trends are causal factors and trigs that threaten children and adolescents thus destroying the family structure. An important part of the solution lies in prevention, not just in correction; so, Spokane sponsors recreation centers for youth and children who are at risk, including those who roam the streets every day.
- Spokane Parks and Recreation offers over 100 camps for children. They range from a half-day to an entire week.
