The University of Louisville secured a grant through the University of Kentucky as the state agency for Administration of Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1966 in Kentucky to fund a series of young adult workshops sponsored by the Urban Studies Center and University College in cooperation with the Louisville Area Council of Churches and the Louisville Young Adult Project. The workshops' purpose was to expose key persons to contemporary urban problems so as to motivate persons under 30 years of age to become actively involved in positive, constructive organization efforts to effectively cope with contemporary urban problems. By means of a sequence of weekend workshops, 60 clergy and other private organization staff personnel, 60 church and other community organization non-staff key teachers, and 60 young adults identified as potential leaders were (1) to become aware of, and sensitive to, forces of contemporary urbanization, (2) to become acquainted with persons and institutions involved in efforts to cope with the problems of urban life, (3) to become more effective in stimulating responsible participation by community residents under 30 years of age in community organizational efforts to cope with contemporary urban problems.
