A Program Plan for Youth of the Northeast Missouri Extension Area.
Rickett, Roark
This study attempted to provide information to assist in developing a program plan for youth work in a five-county area served by the Missouri Extension Program. An attempt was made to (1) determine the extent and diversity of the problems confronting the youth in the area studied, (2) analyze the problems and select those that could be programmed for within the scope of Extension youth work; (3) appraise those resources of the University of Missouri which might be mobilized to meet these needs; and (4) select responsible leadership capable of lending direction to a well-rounded program of youth assistance. To accomplish these aims, a survey and analysis of the literature on the characteristics of the area and of the youth was conducted as well as an indepth look at program development literature, and a questionnaire survey of youth leaders to ascertain their attitudes and ideas of the needs of youth in Missouri's northeast area was undertaken. From the results, it is concluded that the questionnaire was of particular help although some of the findings might have been previously assumed. It is felt that the results did provide new information and reemphasize certain points. The study seems to have provided the beginning of some cohesiveness of youth leaders in the area. (Author/JS)
