RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES.
BELDON, RENA
RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR MOST RURAL YOUTH ARE CENTERED AROUND SCHOOLS, BUT WITH INCREASING EMPHASIS ON ACADEMIC SUBJECTS THE STUDENTS ARE BEING DEPRIVED OF OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN CERTAIN ACTIVITIES FOR ENJOYMENT ONLY. SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE TAKING THE PERFORMING ARTS TO THE RURAL AREAS, PLANNING ART FESTIVALS THAT WOULD INCLUDE PLAYS, CONCERTS, AND ART SHOWS, AND DEVELOPING RECREATION CENTERS AT THE SCHOOLS, WITH STAFFS TO COORDINATE PROGRAMS AND PROVIDE INSTRUCTION. THE MOST IMPORTANT NEED IS LEADERS WHO HAVE THE ENTHUSIASM TO BUILD A DESIRE IN YOUTH TO BE PARTICIPANTS INSTEAD OF SPECTATORS. 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. (SF)
