RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO RURAL YOUTH.
BROWN, MINNIE M.
WHILE ORGANIZED RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE FOR RURAL YOUTH IN NORTH CAROLINA, THE AMOUNT OF PARTICIPATION BY THIS GROUP IS QUITE LIMITED. SOME OF THESE OPPORTUNITIES ARE PROVIDED THROUGH THE EFFORTS OF 4-H, SINCE A PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS ORGANIZATION IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL PARTICIPATION. TO AUGMENT THE EFFORTS OF ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDING RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES, THE NORTH CAROLINA RECREATION COMMISSION PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING FREE SERVICES--(1) STUDYING AND APPRAISING RECREATION INTERESTS, (2) COOPERATING IN THE PROMOTION AND ORGANIZATION OF LOCAL RECREATION SYSTEMS, (3) PLANNING AND FINANCIAL ADVICE, AND (4) TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR RECREATIONAL PERSONNEL AND FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF APPROVED RECREATION STANDARDS. TO UTILIZE FULLY THE ESTABLISHED RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES, TWO MAJOR NEEDS WILL HAVE TO BE SATISFIED--(1) A GREATER AWARENESS OF THE EXISTING RESOURCES ON THE PART OF ALL CONCERNED, AND (2) THE MOTIVIATION OF YOUTH, PARENTS, AND LEADERS AS TO THE VALUE OF PARTICIPATION IN RECREATIONAL AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES. 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)
