Educational Programs for Low-Income Youths in the Inner-City of Spokane, Washington: Fiscal Year 1973-1974.
Holland, David Lee
This paper explains the method used to locate low-income inner-city participants and describes progress during the first fiscal year of the endeavor. Several educational programs are described briefly. Among them are the archaeological summer camp, 4-H teams' participation in a basketball league, 4-H clubs' in the low-income inner-city target area, a 4-H club conference, and the renovation of Grant Park. A special instructor and basic reading and articulation program, which has as its objective the involvement of low income youth in activities considered interesting and educational, is described in detail. Classes conducted under this program include creative crafts, women's awareness, self awareness, basic reading and articulation, musicology, craft ideas, and others. The program is said to provide a viable means to reach and teach low-income people with great success. A motion film of this program documenting some of the described courses is scheduled for release in the fall of 1974. Success of the programs described is considered to be due to their applicability to both transient and stable life styles. Participation by minority groups in these programs is observed to have increased nine fold. The youth programs offered are held to reflect an applied anthropological approach to ethnic, minority, and majority interests. (Author/AM)
