AN OVERVIEW OF COMMUNITY AND AREA PLANNING FOR RURAL YOUTH.
RUSSELL, GEORGE
COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING FOR RURAL YOUTH CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH THE EXISTING ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE PROVIDED BY RURAL AREAS DEVELOPMENT (RAD), WHOSE CENTRAL IDEA IS ORGANIZING COMMUNITY LEADERS TO IDENTIFY PROBLEMS, INVENTORY RESOURCES, AND FURTHER ORGANIZE AND PLAN TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE PROBLEMS. HOWEVER, WHEN COMMUNITY LEADERS FAIL TO ASSUME THIS RESPONSIBILITY AT THE LOCAL LEVEL, THE STATE SHOULD TAKE ACTION, AND WHEN STATES FAIL TO MEET THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD TAKE ACTION. THESE REINFORCEMENTS MUST BE APPLIED WHEN NEEDED, BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE SAME KIND OF PROGRAMS CAN BE UTILIZED TO SOLVE YOUTH PROBLEMS IN EVERY SITUATION. TO INSURE AN EFFECTIVE JOB IN PLANNING FOR SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS OF RURAL YOUTH, WE MUST--(1) PROVIDE FACTUAL INFORMATION TO THE DECISION MAKERS, (2) INVOLVE BOTH POLITICIANS AND THOSE NOT SUBJECT TO POLITICAL PRESSURES, (3) TEACH PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, DEMOCRATIC GROUP ACTION, AND LEADERSHIP, (4) DO A BETTER JOB OF PUBLIC RELATIONS, AND (5) PUT MORE EFFORT IN THE PLANNING. 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. (ES)
