Scope and Contents

Planning, program and post assembly materials for the Sixth National Student Assembly of the YWCA and YMCA. National student assemblies are joint meetings of delegates from the National Student YWCA and National Student YMCA to discuss key national and international issues affecting students and decide on the direction of the movement for the coming years. This convention puts an emphasis on creating dialogue surrounding these issues and the program includes dialogue groups to facilitate meaningful discussion. Assembly coverage from "The Intercollegian," the magazine of the National YWCA and National YMCA, includes photographs, assembly highlights, summaries of assembly sessions and reflections on the experiences. Materials distributed prior to the assembly include the assembly workbook, discussion guides for leaders and preparatory materials for delegates. Delegate workbooks include schedules, reports and information concerning the major areas of emphases and assembly format.
