The Scout Movement as a Transitional Aid to the Puerto Rican Boy Aged 12 – 15 Years, East Harlem, New York City, 1949 – 1950
Within the last two decades a great influx of Puerto Ricans has centered at various led within New York City. Largest of these areas has been that of East Harlem, Manhattan. Extensive study by social scientists, social workers, and other researchers has been directed towards understanding general problems of adjustment inherent in this migration. Noteworthy amongst these has been the Puerto Rican Employment and Migration Office of the Department of Labor of the Government of Puerto Rico, in New York City, which endeavors to interpret to the Puerto Rican the demands of the American labor market to the end that he will stabilize his economic condition in this country. Having this "floor" beneath him, it is assumed by many that the Puerto Rican can proceed in adjustment to the American culture.
