Jesse Owens Olympian Summer Youth Development Program Evaluation.
Cuyahoga Community Coll., Cleveland, OH.
An evaluation is given of an urban summer recreational program which was sponsored by a community college and designed to provide recreation, instruction, competition, and personal development for youth from 8 to 17 years. The program also offered inservice education to staff of community agencies working with youth. Activities included swimming, gymnastics, softball, baseball, track and field, basketball, judo, tennis, and soccer. Approximately 1,250 youth participated. This report presents descriptions of program goals and objectives, staffing, and participants. Results of a survey of the faculty and the students in the recreational leadership course and interviews with the staff and administrators measured the attitudes toward the program and its effectiveness. Demographics of the participants and program costs were also considered. Attitudes toward the inservice component were measured through a questionnaire. Findings indicate an overall satisfaction with the recreational program and the leadership inservice training. Problems that arose are briefly discussed and recommendations are made for future programs. Appended are the program plan, registration form, budget, staff questionnaires, summary of responses, recreation program attendance data, course description, leadership training course evaluation form, and staff evaluation form and responses.
