Programming for Disadvantaged Youth.
Word, U.G., Jr.
Findings are presented of a four-year study on reaching rural disadvantaged youth through an informal education program called the Arkansas Special Youth Project. The information provides a framework for expanding 4-H. Specific methods and techniques used in working with the disadvantaged are outlined and evaluated in terms of the resultant behavioral change of the participants and in terms of project utilization of resources. It is concluded that the program was successful in eliciting both behavioral change and attitudinal change on the part of the disadvantaged youth and of the adults working with them. Extensive graphs and charts are included to demonstrate specific program outcomes. Related documents are RC 003 228 and RC 003 229. (JM)
