Youth... How Communities Can Help. Bulletin, 1936, No. 18-I
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
Five million young people--1 out of every 4 in the country--are without constructive occupation at school, work, or home. An examination of 1930 United States Census and Federal Office of Education figures, brought up to date by sampling studies in various communities, discloses that--Of the 20,100 000, 16 to 24 years of age, inclusive, in the United States today: (1) 4,000,000 are in full-time schools and colleges; (2) 5,000,000 without employment are taking part-time school work; (3) 2,800,000 are young married women not employed and not in school; (4) 7,800,000 are employed at full-time or part-time nonrelief jobs; (5) 300,000 are out of school and unemployed but not seeking employment; and (6) 4,700,000 are out of school, unemployed, and seeking jobs. The figures for employment and unemployment are estimates based on data from surveys of youth and employment in several parts of the country. This challenge to the communities to help youth find their place in the sun has been aggravated by the emergency, but is not born of it. Jobs there have been for the young in the past, though not always the right or the fitting job, recreation they have had, of a kind, and a place in the scheme of things, but not always the best recreation nor the fitting place, either for their own good or for the good of the community. This bulletin contains the following parts: (1) Coordinating community resources; (2) Program activities; and (3) Communities in action. Individual sections contain footnotes.
