Title: A youth center in Lubbock, Texas
Author: Kreuzer, Wolfgang E.
Abstract: People do not like to follow their leisure pursuits in the atmosphere which colors their economic lives . They want something different ; "some people will know this consciously and know also what it is they want to do . Many others will be unaware of it and may remain passive or indifferent to the time which is their own to use as they wish . Young people in this latter group may react aggressively against their social environment . The provision of leisure -time facilities must , therefore , have a twofold function . One is to provide adequate facilities for those who are already aware of what they want . The other is to provide facilities on such a scale and in such circumstances that those who might not otherwise be attracted to use them will in fact slowly become interested . Leisure -time facilities are not merely free and pleasant places provided just for fun within and around urban areas : "they are essential as a deliberate means of encouraging people , especially young people , in the creative use of leisure so that they may find a sense of purpose end a set of values which will enable them to acquire self confidence and become harmoniously -developed human beings ."
