Eliminating Sex Bias in Vocational Youth Organizations. Summary of Project MOVE's Camp Oswegatchie Program, July 8-14, 1978.
Farris, Charlotte J.
At a New York State Vocational Youth Clubs Leadership Camp activities on the topic of eliminating sex bias were conducted by Project MOVE (Maximizing Options in Vocational Education) staff to make club leaders more knowledgeable of the changing labor force and family roles, sex stereotyping and bias, and related legislation. A secondary objective was the assessment of materials and activities for a proposed program activity kit. One advisor and five student sessions were held during the five-day camp. In addition to sixteen activities conducted during these sessions, the project topic was extended through speaking and poster and knowledge quiz contents; a Dear Abby response board; and a suggestion box. The final session of the program involved student identification and the planning of activities to be implemented in home clubs for promoting sex fairness in education. Activities were evaluated by students immediately afterward and in a final evaluation at the end of the camp by advisors and project staff. A majority of male and female students evaluated the program positively. (Appendixes include a schedule of sessions, examples of activities, and evaluation results.) (YLB)
