Work as a Way to Improve Socialization to Adulthood.
Silberman, Harry F.
If work experience is a desirable way to improve the socialization of youth to adulthood, there is a need to know the kind of work experience which should be provided, and the ways in which opportunities for such experiences can be increased. Generally, the author believes that young people are less likely to be intimidated by the bureaucratic environment if they have become familiar with it in a variety of educational forms prior to their full-time entry into the labor force. Ideally, they will have acquired a wide range of experiences at all levels of a number of different kinds of organizations. The author believes that the most effective way to improve socialization to adulthood is to establish a network of federally funded, specially designed, educational work experiences for young people prior to their full time entry into the labor force.
