Are family plans disrupted because of employment schedules or because teen-agers need rides to and from work? Loyola College has opened a Center for Family, Work, and Education in Columbia to find out. The Center's first project concerns a study to examine the impact of teen-age employment on the mental and physical health of the teen-ager as well as on its effect on family life and school performance.
The Center also plans to study what roles parents and schools should play in terms of teen-age employment. The study represents only one aspect of the Center's purpose. According to Dr. Joseph Procaccini, the Center's director, it also seeks to take the worlds of work, family, and education, and have them work together to contribute to the well being of employed teen-agers and their families, rather than the current adversarial positions they engender.
For more information about the study or the Center for Family, Work, and Education, contact Dr. Procaccini at 532-5095 or 323-1010, ext. 2303.
