YWCA of the U.S.A., New York, NY.
This document contains the results of the National Board of YMCA's (Young Men's Christian Association's) deliberations and actions on "Preparing for the Seventies" at its meeting in October 1968. It is for the purpose of providing clarification and assistance to individuals and groups responsible for implementation of the National Board's recommendations. Contents include a description of the study of the Seventies, action recommendations to the National Board from the work groups, and an evaluation of the study. Included are recommendations to member groups to establish commissions to: (1) develop means to insure representation of youth, young adults, women, and minority groups on staff and all policy making bodies; (2) reexamine the guidelines for "position taking" used previously and formulate new ones to identify issues and to move to effective action; and (3) develop ways for reaching the urban youth and poor through interagency programs. Appendixes include the working papers and illustrative action alternatives. (dm)
