CIVIC PARTICIPATION--BALTIMORE PLAN.
SHARP, HELEN F.; WASHKOW, HENRY B.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN FIRST HAND HOW COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS OPERATE TO IMPROVE THE COMMUNITY. IN PREFERENCE TO CLASSROOM STUDY OF THE THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS, THE SENIOR "CURRENT PROBLEMS" CLASSES WERE ARRANGED SO THAT STUDENTS HAD ONE AFTERNOON EACH WEEK TO DEVOTE TO WORK IN THE VARIOUS COMMUNITY AGENCIES PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM. PARTICIPATING AGENCIES INCLUDED THE AMERICAN RED CROSS, THE ENOCH PRATT LIBRARY OF BALTIMORE, THE GIRL SCOUTS, THE GOODWILL INDUSTRIES, THE MARYLAND WORKSHOP FOR THE BLIND, THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT OF BALTIMORE, THE EASTERN COMMUNITY COUNCIL, AND THE BALTIMORE SAFETY COUNCIL. ALTHOUGH NO FORMAL EVALUATION STUDIES WERE PERFORMED, IT WAS OBVIOUS FROM THE REPORTS OF THE STUDENTS AND THE PARTICIPATING AGENCIES THAT THE STUDY HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL.
