When Organizations Change...(pdf)
Randall Barnett, Logan Louderback
When an organization makes major changes, there are two basic concerns. How can the organization be adjusted to meet the needs of clientele? What effect will the anticipated changes have on the staff's job satisfaction? The authors studied the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service staff where three major organizational changes took place- generalist to specialist, enlarged geographical areas, and a changed supervisory structure. The article suggests guidelines to follow before major organizational changes are made.

Youth Agent's Job: Critical Components (pdf)
Loren F. Goyen
Goyen studied five critical-task areas for youth agents: program development and execution, individual help and counseling, organization, interpersonal relationships, and public relations. His findings suggest that competence in areas of agriculture or home economics wasn't critical for youth agents to be effective. He concludes that youth agents need additional training in the behavioral sciences and in adult or extension education. The study also provides a way of looking at the "proper role" of youth programs.

Alliance for Strength (pdf)
Peter Warnock, Donald Jewwtt
Cooperative Extension and the community colleges should join forces in solving community problems. "Each may be able to do something on its own, but neither has the staff, technology, nor educational programs to help communities with all their needs," the authors say. There are several benefits in cooperating. Extension could update its image, and community colleges could become involved in "education for action" programs. And, the alliance between the two institutions could strengthen public support for community educational programs.

Inner-City Youth Programs: Guidelines (pdf)
Jerry Parsons
For several years now, Extension has groped for approaches to reach inner-city youth. Parsons suggests program and organizational guidelines for the professional youth leader to use in developing and implementing educational programs in the inner city. "The present 4-H and Youth Programs can't be transferred to the inner-city," he says. But present Extension youth programs provide"...a sound philosophical basis for developing programs for inner-city youth." Extension could become a leader here, the author feels.
