Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1987 
58 p. 

This report presented results of longitudinal evaluation of Indian Youth Leadership Conference summer camps which provide 8- to 10-day sessions of physical activities and action-oriented problem-solving situations for male and female junior high aged Indian students aimed at developing skills and motivation. The evaluation provided information about the nature of participants, their overall impressions of the camps, and a series of pre-test and post-test measures relating to perceptions about academic and vocational opportunities and self-esteem. Data from 1983-1987 indicated participants entered camp with relatively high levels of academic self-concept and above average participation in school/community activities. The selection process was biased toward Indian students with strong academic/leadership records and positive teacher/counselor recommendations. Overall, participants responded with very favorable ratings of the camp experience and were willing to recommend the experience to a good friend. Approximately 31% were highly satisfied, indicating significantly higher measures of personal effort during camp and more interest in participating in a high school leadership program than other participants. Results indicated camps had a positive impact on participants. It was recommended that the camps be continued. The evaluation report contained several recommendations for future evaluations aimed at strengthening direct measures of development of leadership skills. (NEC)
