Rasmussen, Marilyn F.
Journal of Extension, v41 n5 Oct 2003
Survey responses from 68 civic and community organizations in South Dakota indicated that one-fourth currently had some level of youth participation. Service/community, religious, 4-H/scout leaders, and youth center/after-school programs, but none of the government or business organizations, indicated that youth participated in decision making. Most respondents indicated that youth should be consulted and invited to participate. (SK)
