Youth and Community Work in the 1970s. Proposals by the Youth Service Development Council.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
This report represents the deliberation of two subcommittees of the Youth Service Development Council in England and Wales, and brings up to date the work of the earlier Albemarle Committee. An introductory section reviews the work of this Committee, that 9 years ago gave a chart for action to make the Youth Service a more significant part of the educational structure. Other chapters take a look at the present Youth Service, and examine its relationship with: 1) the changing social scene; 2) recent developments in schools and further education; 3) various age groups; 4) a contemporary philosophy of youth; and, 5) new approaches, techniques, and activities in youth work. Summary and Recommendations for Action outline a plan for a Youth and Community Service for the 70's, which the authors believe reflects the current pattern of young people's lives. Appendix 1 comprises a record of Evidence Received and Places Visited. Appendices 2 and 3 provide statistical information on LEA Youth Work Activity in 1967/8, and Youth Service Involvement of Young People in England and Wales. The Use of School Premises and Equipment by the Community comprises Appendix 4. (JLB)
