PROGRAMS AND SERVICES OF URBAN CHURCHES IN HELPING RURAL YOUTH BECOME ASSIMILATED IN URBAN AREAS.
WAGNER, JOHN, JR.
THIS REPORT STATES THAT RURAL YOUTH MIGRATING TO THE CITY FACE PROBLEMS OF MULTIPLE DECISIONS, LACK OF EDUCATION, LACK OF JOB OPPORTUNITY, LACK OF MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS, COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS, AND LIMITED PARTICIPATION IN DECISIONS AFFECTING THEIR LIVES. THE AUTHOR KNOWS OF NO URBAN CHURCH PROGRAMS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO HELP RURAL YOUTH, BUT HE OFFERS EXAMPLES OF PROGRAMS AND SERVICES WHICH MEET BASIC NEEDS OF YOUTH IN METROPOLITAN AREAS. THESE PROGRAMS, WHICH WOULD ALSO BE APPROPRIATE FOR THE IMMIGRANT, ATTEMPT TO MAKE CONTACT WITH THESE YOUTH, SEEK OUT TALENT AND IMPROVE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, ASSIST IN JOB TRAINING AND PLACEMENT, AND PROVIDE PROPER ASSOCIATIONS AND RELATIONSHIPS. THE NEED IS FOR MORE INFORMATION AND FOR PROGRAMS WORKING WITH PEOPLE RATHER THAN FOR PEOPLE. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PROBLEMS OF RURAL YOUTH IN A CHANGING ENVIRONMENT (SEPTEMBER 1963). (SF)
