A Study of VICA in Oregon.
Barton, John E.
The purpose of the study was to determine the causes for the paucity of Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) chapters in the State of Oregon. Seventy trade and industrial teachers were asked to respond via mailed questionnaire as to why VICA clubs were absent in their schools. It was concluded that the presence of VICA in Oregon seems to be directly related to the amount of exposure of the teacher to the workings of youth group activities. The study clearly indicated that some form of preparation is vital to the success of VICA, or any youth organization in the school. Some suggestions offered were to provide extra pay for working with youth groups, offer inservice and preservice education, and offer workshops with immediate followup. The study includes a discussion of the problem, description of the procedures, analysis and presentation of the data with conclusions, and recommendations. A sample instrument is included along with comments written in on the questionnaire. (NJ)
