The fact that young people have many varied and perplexing problems is recognized by leading educators. It is also recognized that the problems of these young people should be taken into consideration when formulating educational objectives and planning the curriculum for the schools. Recently the Cache County School System inaugurated a guidance service in the North Cache High School. The purpose of the service is to more adequately help the students solve their many and varied problems. In order to do a better job of helping the students, it is felt that it will be of assistance to find out what some of these problems are, the effort students have put forth to solve them, and the agencies that have been most helpful in the solution of them.
