Boys' Club Work Among the Jews

By Edith Rich

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), May 1902

The author describes the challenge of working with the sons of immigrants who quickly become more adept in the American world, both in language skills and earning power, than their immigrant fathers, grow up without a conventional model of parental authority and who appear to be 'bad' or uncontrollable. The solution he suggests is the boys' club, which can be a venue for fostering intellectual, physical, and emotional growth. The primary rule of thumb for the boys' club should be the precept of making every individual count, but several other guidelines for facilitating a successful program are offered.
