National Student Council of the YMCA and YWCA, 1960-1966
Scope and Contents
Documents concerning the National Student Council of the YMCA and YWCA (NSCY), its structure, communication through "The Intercollegian," and Leadership Training School. Lists of committees and their members offer some insight into the structure of the organization. Proposals and reports on the enlargement of the NSCY explore ways to increase the relationship and interaction between local student associations and the national organizations through structural reorganization. "The Intercollegian" shares information for and highlights the work of student YWCA and YMCA associations and the national bodies. Minutes and reports of the Intercollegian Committee of the NSCY concern its promotion, management and functions. The Leadership Training School of the NSCY is an opportunity for members of student Christian associations to explore religion and leadership skills through courses and discussion, in some cases applicable credits can be applied to schools. Leadership Training School documents include completed applications, pamphlets, reports, participants' reflections and informational correspondence.
