Program Balance and Inner City 4-H Youth Programs.
Kirby, Edwin L.
This report suggests that the goals of the 4-H youth programs in working in urban communities with inner-city young people are similar to those for rural area youth. They are: (1) to assist youth to understand his local community and the larger society, and to aid him in participating more effectively in community life; (2) to assist the youth to develop the tools necessary to aid in competent decision making; and (3) to help prepare the young person for his role in a democratic society. To meet these goals, program and staff development processes for servicing inner-city youth must be strengthened. These improvements will lead to improved staff acceptance of taking program risks (risk-taking is an inherent part of carrying out a balanced program) and increased communication of cultural values between the staff and youth clients. Alternatives for action are proposed. (JS)
