Office of Human Development Services (DHHS), Washington, DC.
The 1982 White House Conference on Children and Youth consisted of hundreds of conferences, meetings, activities, hearings, fairs, exhibits, workshops, training sessions, information booths, dinners, awards ceremonies, and local events celebrating a common commitment to American youth. Participating were 45 states, territories, and the District of Columbia. The purpose of this national report is to provide a representative sampling and discussion of state activities, goals, concerns, and recommendations. Specifically, chapter 1 recapitulates the conference history, discusses the background of the 1981 conferences, and describes conference grant awards. Chapter 2 discusses conference coordination and participant selection and composition. Chapter 3 reviews conference formats, activities, themes, and recurring discussion topics. Chapter 4 reiterates recommendations drawn from the state reports. Chapter 5 reconsiders some of the conference activities. Two appendices complete the document: the first contains executive summaries of state reports, while the second lists model programs recommended by the state conferences. (RH)
