Scope and Contents
Documents concerning National Student YWCA student seminars. The Contemporary Options for Change seminar is designed to provide students the opportunity to look at change from the inside of a situation as opposed to change through analytical thought that comes from outside the affected community. The seminar program combines coursed, group living, discussion groups and experience to demonstrate a different approach to social change. Documents include completed application packets, seminar reports and evaluations and documents sent to participants in preparation for the seminar.
