LEONARD, GEORGE E.
THE DEVELOPMENTAL CAREER GUIDANCE IN ACTION (DCGA) PROJECT SOUGHT TO/ (1) BROADEN AND RAISE THE EDUCATIONAL-OCCUPATIONAL LEVELS OF ASPIRATION OF A SELECTED GROUP OF DETROIT INNER-CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS, (2) DEVELOP A PILOT PROGRAM TO BETTER MEET THEIR NEEDS THROUGH EMPHASIS ON DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATIONAL-OCCUPATION CAREER GUIDANCE IN GRADES ONE THROUGH 12, AND (3) TO INVOLVE THE STAFFS OF THE PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS IN THE PROGRAM THROUGH COOPERATIVE PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT. IN PHASE 1, 40 REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE SCHOOLS MET WITH RESOURCE PERSONNEL TO DISCUSS ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL TRENDS, VISITED INDUSTRY, COLLEGES, AND COMMUNITY AGENCIES, DISCUSSED WAYS OF IMPROVING EDUCATION, AND DEVELOPED PLANS FOR PROGRAM IMPROVEMENT. IN PHASE 2, A THREE-PERSON TEAM WAS PLACED IN EACH SCHOOL TO WORK WITH THE SCHOOL STAFF, THE COMMUNITY, AND THE STUDENTS TO CARRY OUT A PROGRAM MEETING PROGRAM OBJECTIVES. RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE LEVEL OF STUDENT ASPIRATION INCREASED. STUDENTS SHOWED MORE GROWTH IN REGARD TO OCCUPATIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND PLANNING, RE-EXAMINED THEIR VALUE STRUCTURE, SHOWED A MORE ACCEPTABLE ATTITUDE TOWARD COUNSELORS, AND PERCEIVED A GREATER NEED FOR PROFESSIONAL HELP. THE PROJECT WAS EVALUATED BY DR. CHARLES MORRIS WHO CONCLUDED THAT THE IDEA AND STRATEGY FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF DCGA HAD MADE "A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE PROJECT SCHOOLS."
