A Study of the Congruency between the Interests and Concerns of Student Participants and the Goals, Objectives, and Activities of Vocational Student Organizations.
Smith, Clifton L.; And Others
Studies were conducted to determine the goals of five organizations for high school vocational students and the extent to which local clubs are meeting these goals and developing affective skills and leadership abilities through appropriate activities. Survey questionnaires were developed and administered to many local chapters of the following organizations: Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), Future Homemakers of America/Home Economics Related Occupations (FHA-HERO), and Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA). This report summarizes separately the findings of each of the five surveys (which, in general, found the clubs to be instilling leadership qualities in their members and conducting activities that are acceptable to them). The report also makes recommendations for strengthening each of the programs. (KC)
