Youth and Poverty.
The consultation reported on in this document was co-sponsored by the Commission on Religion in Appalachia and the West Virginia Council of Churches. The 110 participants (church representatives, college and university faculty and students, government officials, and secondary school personnel), all from north central West Virginia, met to explore ways in which churches and colleges of the area could pool efforts and resources to serve the needs of rural youth caught in poverty and to combat the causes of persistent poverty. This report contains a copy of the program, a summary of the major addresses, and reports from the 8 working groups which explored such topics as youth motivation and self-image, financing college admissions, service role of the local church, and career opportunity and out-migration.
