We are just closing National Vocational Educa- tk)n We^. Vocatk)oal Agriculture is represented by both. First, traia- ins in agriculture is largely vocatio»- al at the hi^ sohool level. Second, FFA is the national organization for yourth involved in vocational ag¬ riculture. 1 feel youth organizations are extremely important at thia level. Enthusiasm runs high, and young people have the energy to do SOMETHING. Extracurricular ac¬ tivities inchiding athleiis ande school and church orgianizaitiotK can harness this zest and «iergy to build better dtizOK. These ^iMitti orgemizations can be much nudre than just efforts to get young pdopte off the streets, how¬ ever they are effective in this re¬ spect. Young people want to beoome lespoiKlble citizens, and Ihey recognize tiieh- need for guidance. FFA helped me when I was a teeo- ager. It can do lhe same for others in Huntley, too. By the time tiifis article is pub¬ lished, two Agriculture Update Meetings will have been heW. The three remaining (are: "New Govern¬ ment Programv, February 20; "How to Keep McHenry County Land In Agriculture, Februaty 27; and '<Con- servation Tillage, March 6."
