EXPERIMENTAL SUMMER PROGRAM FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS AND FACULTY.
City Coll. of San Francisco, CA.
IN 1967, WITH ASSISTANCE FROM TWO FOUNDATIONS, THE CITY COLLEGE OF SAN FRANCISCO ESTABLISHED A 2-PART EXPERIMENTAL SUMMER PROGRAM IN WHICH HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS TOOK EXPLORATORY ORIENTATION COURSES IN THE COLLEGE'S TECHNICAL PROGRAMS, AND HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS, COUNSELORS, AND ADMINISTRATORS PARTICIPATED IN A GUIDANCE WORKSHOP WHICH ALSO INVOLVED THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. IN ADDITION TO LEARNING ABOUT THE REQUIREMENTS OF AN OCCUPATION, THE EDUCATION AND TRAINING NEEDED FOR ENTRY, EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, WORKING CONDITIONS, AND SALARIES, THE STUDENTS HAD OPPORTUNITIES FOR SELF-APPRAISAL AND COUNSELING, THUS ACQUIRING A BASIS FOR MAKING VALID CAREER DECISIONS. THE COUNSELORS' WORKSHOP WAS INTENDED TO HELP PARTICIPANTS TO GROW IN COUNSELING SKILLS AND TO INCREASE THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THE RANGE AND DEPTH OF THE COLLEGE'S OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS. COUNSELORS VISITED THE ORIENTATION CLASSES, WORKED WITH THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS UNDER SUPERVISION OF THE COLLEGE COUNSELORS ASSIGNED TO THE PROJECT, WENT ON FIELD TRIPS TO OBSERVE WORKERS AND LEARN ABOUT TECHNICAL OCCUPATIONS, AND PARTICIPATED IN SEMINARS. BOTH STUDENTS AND FACULTY REACTED FAVORABLY TO THE PROGRAM. (WO)
