National Institute on the Role of Youth Organizations in Vocational Education (Lawrenceville, N.J., August 11-15, 1969). Final Report, Part II.
Vance, James C.
Supervisors, educators, and students from 40 states and Puerto Rico participated in an institute designed to communicate new concepts and procedures in youth organizations to potential change agents. Through participation in task force activities, institute members: (1) developed guidelines and models, (2) identified commonalities, (3) determined leadership activities, (4) defined areas of research, and (5) explored the guidance, evaluation, and cost benefit aspects of vocational education youth organizations. Also, participants developed individual programs of action for implementation in their home setting. To determine progress made in implementing the programs of action, a followup survey gathered information on such points as: (1) providing training for educators, (2) training students for leadership, (3) promoting junior high involvement, (4) improving public relations, (5) enrolling handicapped and disadvantaged, and (6) doing research on student outcomes. A significant finding of the survey was that only a few participants had initiated activities to enroll handicapped and disadvantaged students in vocational education youth organizations. A followup institute was recommended to deal in greater depth with identified problem areas. Part I of this report is available as ED 044 527. (JS)
