    I think instead of 'One root of youth crime is...' you can use 'Root of youth crime is...'

    Try one of these:

    One root of youth crime is the hopelessness of poverty.
    One root of youth crime is poor educational opportunities.
    One root of youth crime is a culture that glamorizes criminal behavior.
