ADJUSTMENT OF RURAL YOUTH TO URBAN ENVIRONMENTS.
BATTLE, MARK
WITHIN THE DEFINITION OF RURAL YOUTH ARE FOUND YOUNG PEOPLE FROM FARMS, MIGRANT STREAMS, SMALL COMMUNITIES, AND ISOLATED HILLS IN APPALACHIA. YET, A COMMONALITY FOUND IS THAT THEY ARE YOUTH AND AS SUCH THEY SHOULD BE DEALT WITH AS TOTAL PERSONS AND NOT AS GROUPS. GOOD EMPLOYMENT PREPARATION PROGRAMS, SUCH AS THE U. S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR'S PACKAGE, SHOULD BE COMPREHENSIVE, YET PEOPLE-ORIENTED. THE SUCCESS OF ANY YOUTH, RURAL OR URBAN, IN FINDING A SATISFYING ROLE IN LIFE IS NOT DEPENDENT UPON HIS BACKGROUND AS MUCH AS THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE AND WILL INFLUENCE HIM. 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)
