Recreation Leadership Training for Teenage Youth: A Study of Basic Program Development.
Webster, William Douglas
Twenty-eight agencies throughout the nation which are responsible for recruitment and training of teenagers into responsible leadership roles in the recreation field were surveyed for the purpose of producing a set of guidelines for creating and planning leadership programs through which the nation's youth might fulfill the need for more trained personnel in the recreation occupations. Specific program guidelines, based on the descriptive survey, include basic criteria for selection of trainees, program philosophy, supervision and evaluation, and use of awards. A suggested basic program for teenage recreation leadership training is discussed in terms of objectives, control of the programs, fees, recruitment, enrollment size, program length, program content, and other related areas. Four tables and a bibliography are presented. (AL)
