Federal Extension Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
THE NUMBER OF FARM OPERATORS, MANAGERS, AND EMPLOYEES IS DECREASING DUE TO AN INCREASE IN THE SIZE OF FARMS, A DECREASE IN THE NUMBER OF FARMS, A RAPID GROWTH IN TECHNOLOGY AND CONSEQUENT MECHANIZATION OF AGRICULTURE, AND AN INCREASE IN FARMING EFFICIENCY. IN BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY ALLIED WITH AGRICULTURE, OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WITH FARM BACKGROUNDS ARE IDENTIFIED. OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE AGRICULTURE ARE AVAILABLE TO RURAL YOUTH, BUT TRAINING AND SKILL IS ESSENTIAL IN THE COMPETITIVE JOB MARKET. THE GOVERNMENT IS ENCOURAGING THE EXPANSION OF STATE EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOYMENT COUNSELING SERVICES, ENCOURAGING WORK AND TRAINING PROJECTS TO IMPROVE THE EMPLOYABILITY OF PUBLIC ASSISTANCE RECIPIENTS, PROVIDING TRAINING THROUGH THE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT, AND ENCOURAGING ACTION PROGRAMS, WORK-EXPERIENCE PROJECTS, AND GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING PROGRAMS. LOCAL COMMUNITIES CAN HELP BY DISSEMINATING INFORMATION REGARDING OPPORTUNITIES, ASSISTING YOUTH IN CONSIDERING VARIOUS ASPECTS OF VOCATIONAL CHOICES, AND IMPROVING AND EXPANDING THE SCHOOL'S GUIDANCE AND VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS.
