First Annual Report of New York State Guidance Center for Women for Period November 1, 1966 through October 31, 1967.
New York State Guidance Center for Women, Suffern.
The New York State Guidance Center for Women is sponsored by Rockland Community College under contract with the State University of New York, and located just east of Suffern, New York. During its first year, the Center counseled 483 women and an additional 800 were served through its information services--library, career interest meetings, radio career information series (13 30-minute broadcasts), and a Careers for Women Workshop series. About 80 percent of the Center's clients come from Rockland County. The professional staff includes a director, associate director, librarian, and six part-time counselors. The Center's counseling records indicate that while women considering employment or further education need guidance and information and are willing to seek it, husband's attitudes, inflexible work and school schedules, and fears of impersonal work situations and inability to compete with younger students deter them from returning to work or school. (Document includes seven tables, lists of Advisory Committee members, tests available at the Center, and supplementary reports of counseling and testing services, information and special services, costs and staffing, and community, state, national, and international relationships.)
