A Study of Informal Out-of-School Programs with Migrant Children.
The purposes of this study were to determine the educational impact of an out-of-school informal migrant program, and to discover materials, techniques, methods, and guidelines for similar programs with migrant children. The Orange County, New York 4-H program was evaluated weekly and a record of successful projects, staff training procedures, and a final evaluation were reported. Eleven states conducting 4-H migrant programs were contacted and information on their programs was summarized. Major findings were that 12 out of 50 counties indicated they were conducting programs with migrant youth; that funding from Cooperative Extension, community, and Title I ranked the highest in program support; that program supervision came primarily from Extension staff; that volunteer leaders conducted the majority of programs; and that foods, sewing, and crafts served as the foundation of most programs. A description of the project method was presented with project examples. (PS)
