Summer projects and seminars sponsored by the National Intercollegiate Christian Council offer students from YMCA and YWCA student associations opportunities to combine work, service, tourism and discussion to gain understanding of the social and economic conditions faced by others. The College Summer Service Group and the St. Louis Summer Service offer experience working and living in a big city. For the European Work-Study Seminar students travel around post-war Europe meeting with other students to gain insight into their lives and the foreign relations of the United States. To gain understanding of the United States government and politics, students can attend the Washing Student Citizenship Seminar. The Student workers in Agriculture, Industry and Community Service project offers students a chance to assist with the labor shortage during World War II while learning about labor and agriculture lives. Reports of projects describe the experiences of the student and reflect upon the lesson learned. Schedules, pamphlets, notes and bulletins concern preparing and planning for the projects.
