Focus on the Family.
Hardy, James M.
This research attempts to evaluate the YMCA's program in terms of its effect upon the family members it serves. The study was designed to: (1) classify, by descriptive types, the various kinds of YMCA operations which serve the family, identifying their characteristic differences; (2) examine and describe operating practices of family YMCAs regarding membership, finance, organizational structure, leadership, and program emphasis; (3) evaluate program effectiveness in family YMCAs in relationship to a theoretical framework for program analysis. The report contains implications and challenges for upgrading work with families, illustrated with actual reports of programs underway, such as "Building your Marriage" courses, "Co-op Nurseries,""Lads without Dads" clubs, "Parents without Partners" programs, series on "Sex Education for Parents and Youngsters,""Parent Teen Communication" and others.
