By examining trends of the 1950s and 60s, the author predicts the future of American society and the role of the Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) in 1980. As computers become more prevalent, as access to goods and services increases across racial and social boundaries, and as education becomes more critical to gainful employment, JVS will see a shift in its clientele. JVS will work with more old and young people and more women re-entering the workforce. They will have proportionately higher numbers of disabled and undereducated clients, whose fees will contribute a higher percentage of JVS revenue than in 1970. Ultimately, the JVS will become an agency charged to increase "man's capacity for learning and doing.
