A youth settlement project which will enable under-privileged youths from all parts of Palestine to join one of the agricultural settlements after a period of training, was announced here today by Miss Henrietta Szold. Miss Szold is devoting funds raised in tribute of her eightieth birthday to develop this plan.

Underprivileged youths selected from all sections of the country will be included in the land settlement scheme along the same lines as the Youth Aliyah. After the young people have successfully completed an experimental period of general and agricultural training they will join permanent youth settlements in En Harod and Sdei Jacob, both of which are on Jewish National Fundland.
