On the Run

Runaway children and programs to help
Produced, directed and written by Robert Richter

A million kids run away from home every year.

Here are some you will never forget - and what has been done to help them survive.

Runaway teens movingly tell the camera--and through the camera, their parents--why they ran away from home. Raw feelings, desperate voices, talking openly about critical issues at home or on the streets or in shelters for runaways.

A powerful timeless story originally produced for the Office of Youth Development of HEW.

Study Areas: sociology, American studies, Social and political history, psychology, youth development, urban studies
