In the late 1950s, President Gorghendi Kahn established the Rocaterranian Youth Administration and appointed Julia Lindahl head of the Girls Auxiliary unit. Meant to serve as a developmental bridge between the Summer Camp program and the National Labor Service, the Youth Administration offered a work-study program for college students aged 16-25, paying their tuition fees along with modest stipends. The program was designed to prepare youth for careers in the Labor Service, government, military, or in other service-oriented professions.
Kuhler sat out of high school for two years to work on his parents’ ranch. He lamented the absence of such a federal program when he was a college student, so he created one for Rocaterrania.
Under U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, the National Youth Administration (1935-39) was an agency that provided work and education for Americans between the ages of 16 and 25.
