Testing Teenage Attitudes and Interests: The Place of the Center in the Life of the Teenager
A survey was conducted in 1960 of teenaged members of a Miami Jewish Community Center (JCC). This survey revealed that teenagers were more favorably inclined toward the JCC than was believed, though a significant majority shared a keen concern with the condition of the building. Teenagers are highly interested in maintaining friendships, and parents were found to be surprisingly involved in their children's lives. JCC members join clubs at school, have Bar Mitzvah ceremonies more than the average amount, and generally observe Chanukah and Passover at home. These data were valuable but required significant resources to achieve, and a repeat survey is suggested for three years after the initial survey was conducted.
