Build Our American Communities; A Community Development Program for High School and Young Adult Groups.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC. Farmers Home Administration.
Intended for organizations and groups for use as a basis for action in building a program of community development, this program guide was developed by a task force appointed by the Farmers Home Administration and the Future Farmers of America. Emphasis on the program is on group learning and action which will result in individual attitudes, concepts, and interest necessary for future progress in community development. Topics are: (1) Why Community Development, (2) Characteristics of a Viable Community, (3) Analyzing a Community's Resources, (4) Community Development Projects, and (5) Telling What Has Been Learned and Accomplished. The first three units contain objectives, introduction, interest approach, discussions, problems, assignments, references, and unit tests. Units 4 and 5 are divided into numbered study sections, each dealing with a major area of community development or public relations. (GB)
