Conferences, circa 1966-1968
Scope and Contents
Following the National Youth Conference on Natural Beauty and Conservation in 1966, subsequent projects, actions and conferences are planned to further explore the role of youth in conservation, achieve actionable results and carry the momentum of the conference forward. To help groups realize their conservation projects, Coca Cola offers community project assistant grants. Grant guidelines and announcements are included and further describe the requirements and goals of the program. Another special project, "Youth Takes the Lead," is a program sponsored by Science Research Associates, a subsidiary of IBM, to develop guidelines for youth community conservation efforts. The resulting guidelines are not present in the materials but the report "Youth Power" reports on community projects and the progress of the "Youth Takes the Lead" program. Additional materials include press releases announcing programming, correspondence to community leaders and project participants, conference reports and program reports.
