Twelfth Month Evaluation, Career Planning Center (Project Interchange), September 1967-August 1968.
Seattle Public Schools, WA. Career Planning Center.
The Career Planning Center was an education-work-counseling program designed to accommodate 50 boys, ages 16-18, who are residents within the Seattle School District. The purpose of the program was to help the low-achieving young adults and potential dropouts to remain in school and to assist them in determining and accomplishing meaningful goals. Goals for the students were reentry into high school, earning a diploma at the Center, increasing employability, securing employment, or entering military service. The general strategy of the instructional programs was to determine the specific individual needs of a participant, and accommodate them so as to maximize his employability. Programs were offered in the fields of reading, language arts-social studies, mathematics, the world of work, physical education, driver education, and work experience. A group counseling program was also given, and paraprofessional personnel were utilized. An Extended Summer Sheltered Work Program was operated from June 10-August 30, 1968, with a total new enrollment of 100 students, averaging 48 students per work week.
