SERVICES AND ENVIRONMENTAL ADJUSTMENTS NEEDED BY RURAL YOUTH WHO MOVE TO URBAN COMMUNITIES.
RAMSEY, RALPH J.
PERPLEXING PROBLEMS HAVE ARISEN BECAUSE OF THE MIGRATION PATTERN OF YOUNG ADULTS FROM RURAL AREAS TO URBAN CENTERS IN THE UNITED STATES. SOME OF THESE PROBLEMS INCLUDE--(1) YOUTH ADJUSTING TO THE ADULT WORLD, (2) MOVING FROM THE SUB-CULTURE WHERE EARLY TRAINING WAS RECEIVED TO A DIFFERENT SUB-CULTURE, AND (3) PREPARATION FOR THE CONTINUALLY CHANGING WORLD OF WORK AND STYLE OF LIFE. MANY OF THESE RURAL-URBAN MIGRANTS HAVE BEEN PUERTO RICANS, SOUTHERN WHITES AND NEGROES, WHITES FROM THE PLAINS, SPANISH-AMERICANS FROM THE SOUTHWEST, AND INDIANS. SOME SURVEYS CONCLUDE THAT THE RURAL MIGRANT IS DISADVANTAGED WHEN SEEKING AN URBAN JOB AND WHEN ADJUSTING TO THE URBAN COMMUNITY. THIS STEMS FROM THE VAST DIFFERENCES BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL CULTURES. A PATTERN OF PROBLEMS OR DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS ARISE THROUGH THE LIFE-TIME OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL. THE CONCEPT OF DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS IS THAT OF SEQUENTIAL LEARNING, AND SEVERAL SUGGESTIONS ARE PRESENTED WHICH COULD BE INCORPORATED IN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR RURAL YOUTH. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23-26, 1967, WASHINGTON, D.C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY.
