THE EXPANDING RANGE OF OCCUPATIONAL AND TRAINING SERVICES FOR RURAL YOUTH.
ALLER, CURTIS C.
THE VALUE ORIENTATION OF MANY RURAL YOUTH FAILS TO BRING ABOUT SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION INTO THE COUNTRY'S LABOR FORCE. THIS FAILURE IS MORE PRONOUNCED WITH THOSE YOUTH WHO EXPERIENCE EXTREME ECONOMIC DEPRIVATION, ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE FROM A MINORITY GROUP SUCH AS NEGROES, SPANISH AMERICANS, OR INDIANS. THE GOVERNMENT HAS A RESPONSIBILITY FOR PROVIDING ASSISTANCE TO COMMUNITIES, INDUSTRIES, AND INDIVIDUALS TO ALLEVIATE MANPOWER PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN THE RURAL TO URBAN TRANSITION. TWO BASIC ELEMENTS NEEDED IN A MANPOWER PROGRAM GEARED TO THE PROBLEMS OF RURAL YOUTH ARE--(1) AN IMPROVED SYSTEM OF INFORMATION ABOUT EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, AND (2) A NEED FOR ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE THROUGH EXPANDING JOB OPPORTUNITIES. SOME PROGRAMS WHICH HAVE AFFORDED TRAINING TO MANY RURAL YOUTH INCLUDE--THE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT, THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND PUBLIC WORKS ACT, THE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT, AND THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT. THROUGH THE CONTINUATION AND EXTENSION OF THESE TYPES OF PROGRAMS A SMOOTHER TRANSITION WILL BE REALIZED BY 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. (ES)
