Erickson, Judith B.
This directory lists 500 organizations to help young people who want to share a special interest, make new friends, get more involved, or find out more about their future career goals. The directory is a guide to U.S. adult-sponsored, kid-targeted, national non-profit and for-profit organizations. The directory is easy to use, fully indexed, and organized by the focus of each organization. Each entry provides a contact name, address, phone number, and a brief description of the organization's objectives and activities. Available e-mail addresses and Web sites also are listed. The book includes tips on how to find local chapters of organizations and information about how to start a local chapter on the local level. The groups listed provide a vast, informal system of education through which members learn a variety of skills and values. Service, scholarship, internship opportunities, and career advice are often available.
