The Office of Economic Opportunity (1964-1974) was the agency responsible for administering most of the War on Poverty programs created as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society agenda. According to a record in the National Archives, however, this film is attributed to ACTION/Peace Corps, and part of a series of “motion pictures related to the Peace Corps, ca. 1963-1981.”
