National Institute on the Role of Youth Organizations in Vocational Education (Trenton, New Jersey, August 11-15, 1969). Final Report, Part I.
Vance, James C.; Bregman, Ralph
An institute, attended by 90 vocational-technical education specialists and students from 40 states and Puerto Rico, was held to communicate new concepts and procedures in vocational education youth organizations to potential change agents in the various states. Institute activities involved formal presentations by A. W. Tenney, C. T. Appell, C. A. Stebbins, G. Swan, R. Anderson, M. Blair, W. J. Brown, Jr., B. I. Blackstone, T. Gambino, M. Hirshfeld, R. J. Holman, A. L. Reynolds, T. R. Jones, and M. Reel, which sought to provide background information related to nine task force groups. Task force members developed recommendations, guidelines, and models, identified commonalities, determined leadership activities, defined areas of research, and explored the guidance, evaluation, and cost benefit aspects of vocational education youth organizations. Some institute recommendations were: (1) The material developed in the institute should be written into a manual on guidelines for youth organizations, (2) A research program should be set up as a cooperative effort between the existing youth organizations to determine new directions and to objectives for youth organizations, and (3) There needs to be a followup institute to treat some of the areas in greater depth.
