Excerpt from The American Standard Program for Boys: Manual for LeadersThe Canadian Standard Efficiency Tests for boys were published October, 1912. Even before that date the proposed program for the boys of Canada had attracted the attention of workers with boys in the United States; and since the original publication and the widening of the scope of these tests, together with the successful working out of the pro gram in many localities and under varying conditions, leaders have felt convinced in an increasing degree that a plan of like character should be made available for boys in this country.The Association of Boys' Work Secretaries of the Young Men's Christian Association gave some attention to the matter through a special committee and accomplished enough by way of experiment to demonstrate the fact that a similar program would undoubtedly find a place here. It was evident, however, that a volunteer committee of men whose time was occupied with local matters could not carry this plan forward successfully; with this conviction before them, the Association of Boys' Work Secretaries, at a meeting in Cleveland, in May, 1916, requested the International Committee Of Young Men's Christian Associations to become responsible for the development of a program of this general character. This the International Committee agreed to do, and appointed a committee to take up this work.The National Council of Young Men's Christian Associa tions of Canada very graciously granted permission to the American Committee to use any of the material desired, or to make any modification Of the same which might make it available for the work in this country.With the material thus made available as a basis the com mittee has proceeded to construct a program which is designed to meet the essential requirements which any such program must meet to be successful. These requirements we deem to be: (i) The program must provide for all sides Of the boy's life; (2) it must be graded to meet the needs of boys Of thir teen as well as nineteen; (3) it must be progressive, growing with the boy; (4) it must provide for individual work and group work, and be adapted to mass work; (5) it should provide for the country boy as well as the city boy, the school boy and the boy who works; (6) it should be a program and not an organization; (7) it should be based on what is best for the boy rather than what is best for the organization which carries it out; for ultimately what is best for the boy will be best for the organization.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
