Abstract:
The internship experience with.the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department provided opportunities to observe administrative and supervisory techniques, practice and observe leadership responsibilities, and examine written material relating to policies, procedures, and planning. Administrative and supervisory techniques were observed at meetings held by the parks and recreation superintendent, the recreation superintendent, and section supervisors. In addition, each of these persons, and others, were interviewed regarding their personal views on administration and supervision. Two weeks were spent in a leadership role with the department's recreation program for retarded children. Both individual and group leadership was practiced. Leadership in action was observed by visiting many recreation programs at parks and schools. Leadership problems were discussed with several of the recreation division's staff. A large part of the last two weeks of the internship was spent examining records and files at the parks and recreation department's offices in the city hall. Particular attention was paid to the financial operations of the department, personnel procedures, and long range planning. When the internship was over and the material for the diary compiled, twenty-nine criteria for a successful municipal recreation program were selected from a textbook and compared to the author’s opinion of how well the parks and recreation department met the criteria.
