Scope and Contents
Documents concerning the American Youth Congress and the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s relationship to it, including correspondence concerning the YWCA of the U.S.A. Business and Professional Council's relationship to and eventual disassociation. Through the dissemination of information and congresses and conventions the American Youth Congress addresses issues faced by youth in the United States and shares statements on their stance on issues affecting youth. As World War II progresses discussions turn to employment conditions and opportunities for young adults and youth, peace and democracy and the affects of war on young people.
