Young adult conferences, 1952-1959
Scope and Contents
Documents concerning the planning, program and evaluation of YWCA of the U.S.A. young adult conferences in the southern region. Regional young adults conferences bring together young adult members from many different YWCA of the U.S.A. programs from across the region to discuss common issues that young adults may face in addition to providing opportunity for recreation and socialization with other young adults. Prior to 1959 the southern region holds separate area conferences for the Southeast and the Southwest. Materials are grouped chronologically alternating between the two areas. Conference reports combine a statistical overview with narrative summaries and assessments. Additional materials include pre-program materials for delegates, bulletins, fliers, schedules and lists of delegates.
