ALERS-MONTALVO, MANUEL; AND OTHERS
THE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE OF COLORADO IS CONDUCTING A STUDY, IN JEFFERSON, WASHINGTON, AND HUERFANO COUNTIES, TO ASSESS PROBLEMS, NEEDS, OR WANTS IN AREAS OF ACCELERATING POPULATION LOSS OR GAIN, TO DEVELOP EXPERIMENTAL EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, AND TO EVALUATE MEANS OF ORGANIZING AND APPLYING THE EXTENSION SERVICE TO THE BEST ADVANTAGE. THIS REPORT (FOR 1963-1965) PRESENTS A PARTIAL ANALYSIS OF INFORMATION GIVEN BY HOUSEWIVES ON FAMILY AND COMMUNITY NEEDS, BY LEADERS ON COMMUNITY NEEDS, AND BY HIGH SCHOOL SOPHOMORES ON THE NEEDS OF YOUTH. RELATIONSHIPS WERE ALSO SOUGHT BETWEEN AGE, EDUCATION, AND OCCUPATIONAL STATUS, AND PERCEIVED PROBLEMS OR NEEDS. EXCEPT IN HUERFANO COUNTY, YOUNGER AGE, MORE EDUCATION, AND HIGHER OCCUPATIONAL STATUS CORRELATED WITH STRONG INTEREST IN FAMILY NEEDS. HOWEVER, NO SUCH CONSISTENT RELATIONSHIPS EMERGED IN REGARD TO INTEREST IN VARIOUS COMMUNITY NEEDS. HIGH SCHOOL BOYS TENDED TO FAVOR MECHANICAL SKILLS, WHILE THE GIRLS FAVORED DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS. PROBLEMS FOR CONSIDERATION IN THE NEXT PHASE OF THE STUDY WILL CENTER ON CRITERIA FOR SELECTING PROGRAMS RELEVANT TO THE WHOLE COMMUNITY, AND WAYS OF SURMOUNTING ADMINISTRATIVE AND EDUCATIONAL OBSTACLES.
