Abstract
Key Points: Twelve recommendations (that span beyond the 42 recommendations of the 1996 National Action Plan) are proposed within the framework of: a) non-working children, b) working children and adolescents, and c) infrastructure and leadership. Wherever possible, evaluation strategies should be applied to existing and new approaches; and evaluation results should drive program modifications. Concentrated efforts should be made to enable farm families, rural schools, farm organizations, agribusinesses, and university agricultural training programs to plan and implement these recommendations. Innovative strategies that capture the diversities of people and production methods involved in agriculture should be matched to changes in the farm workforce, community and social support networks, and external forces (e.g. economy) affecting U.S. agriculture. Communication of successes and failures regarding research and program activities should be shared to maximize progress toward achieving our goals.
