Abstract: The research objective were: 1) to study the problems and the community needs about of
adolescents, 2) to encourage participation in making a life skills program appropriated for
adolescents and community needs 3) to develop life skills program which could be completed by
the stakeholders and be presented with guidelines to develop activities so as to create by
themselves and 4) to apply the Participatory Action Research (PAR) to find out life skills
program. The participants were formal and non-formal leaders, parents, local governor, school
teachers and adolescents. The researcher had collected the data by observing non-participation
and participation, in-dept interview and note-taking, field note, reference from documents, and
participating in the community planning project itself. The result of the study: 1) Youth risk
behavior problem that related with occupation were time management, games addiction, adaptive
behavior, lack of social skills, sex behavior, violence and social participation in community. 2)

development activities to strengthen the community for the adolescents and 3) Community

life skills program for concrete activities that obviously developed the locality and the readiness
