[Address Given at the Regional Junior College Recreation Education Institute, American River College, September 25, 1969.]
Lutzin, Sidney G.
The United States has made striking technical advances in recent years, but there has not been comparable progress in social services. Greater affluence and leisure for some have been one result of technical progress, but problems of poverty and urban development are more pressing. New developments to improve the condition of society can be expected. In view of this, there will be a growing need for personnel in the field of parks and recreation. Such personnel will to a large extent be drawn from junior college graduates. The Associates' 2-year training will not be sufficient for supervisory positions. It is suggested that junior colleges use the curriculum guide prepared by the National Recreation and Park Association. The Association has a personnel placement service that can provide junior colleges with qualified instructors in the field and refer graduates to positions. The Association will make every effort to provide the graduates with a stimulating career, continued training, and advancement opportunities. (MS)
