Girl Reserve conferences, 1941
Scope and Contents
Girl Reserve, the YWCA club for adolescent girls, is an opportunity for girl to meet and to develop their spiritual, physical and intellectual lives through social activities, camps, leadership training and classes. In 1941 a national conference for Girl Reserve advisors is held to develop leadership skills in helping adolescent girls with social issues. Conference discussions center around the rational behind methods such as group work, current social, political and economic issues faced by youth in the United States, the meaning of inclusive groups and ideas for organizing programs.
