Education Assistance Program, Racine Environment Committee, Inc., Racine, Wisconsin. Program Case Study, No. 4.
Kepler, Edwin C.
The education assistance program is a task force of the Racine Environment Committee (REC), which is a non-profit organization formed in the fall of 1967 for the purpose of studying and seeing that action is taken on community problems which affect the Racine metropolitan area. The education assistance committee reviews applications for assistance and recommends courses of action to the trustees of the REC Educational fund. The program's objectives are to encourage minority group youths in Racine to go on to higher education after graduation from high school; to work individually with those youths who wish assistance in obtaining a higher education, furnishing such counseling and supplementary financial aid as may be required; and, to encourage colleges and technical schools attended by Racine minority students to respond to their particular needs which may call for individualized special arrangements. As a result of the REC education assistance program, 87 minority students from Racine enrolled in the fall of 1968 at 28 colleges and technical training schools at a total cost of $129,000. (JM)
