Resources for Youth, Volume I, Number III.
National Commission on Resources for Youth, Inc., New York, NY.
Each issue of this newsletter focuses on a particular theme and describes programs which young persons have initiated, either by themselves or in cooperation with adults. The purpose is to foster the creation of programs which evoke the emotional and intellectual commitment of high school aged persons. In this issue, efforts of several high school programs to save the environment describe how: 1) seven Neighborhood Youth Corps enrollees helped clean up Oregon's Coos Bay; 2) twenty-two Neighborhood Youth Corps enrollees aided the Health Department in an extensive rodent extermination and clean up campaign; 3) participants in the Technical Recreation Program made imaginative and practical devices out of scrap metal and 'electronic junk'; 4) eight high school students planned and organized an enormous ecology fair for Boulder, Colorado; 5) students at Campolindo High organized an operation named "Earth", in which members fight for ecological causes; and 6) Wilderness High School, located in California, offers school credit hours for participating in environmental education activities. A few funding sources and films are listed. Those interested in receiving information on the 600 programs that "Resources For Youth" maintains on file are invited to write for information.
