In this address, given on April 25, 1936 at the Forum of the City Club of Cleveland, Ohio, Charles W. Taussig, Chairman of the National Advisory Committee of the National Youth Administration (NYA), directly addresses the importance of the NYA to America's future. In particular, Taussig argues that employment opportunities for young men and women are extremely important because of the "dangerous social consequences of permitting millions of impressionable young people to feel that there is no place for them in our present social system."
