Teenage conferences, 1967

Scope and Contents

Documents concerning 1957 Y-Teen southern conferences. The report "Sociological Analysis of Y-Teen Summer Conferences, Southern Region: Past, Present and Potential" followed by documents concerning the program, preparations and evaluations of the GAF (Georgia, Alabama and Florida) and Kentucky-Tennessee conferences in the southern region of the YWCA of the U.S.A. The microdex begins with a report assessing the progress and impact made from a 1958 special project to support integration in Southern conferences. The project utilized a special consultant and hoped the ultimate impact would expand to the home communities of the conference participants. The report is followed by the documents for the 1967 area summer conferences. Summer conferences are held in smaller state or regional sections within a region to unite Y-Teen members under common purpose, expose them to new members, provide opportunity to participate in discussion regarding issues of regional and national importance to teens and take part in the YWCA beyond their local association. Documents include participant and leader conference evaluations, conference reports, program and materials sent to participants ahead of the conference.
