Project Inspire: Vocational Guidance Institute.
National Alliance of Businessmen, Washington, DC.; Greater Hartford Chamber of Commerce, CT.; Hartford Univ., West Hartford, CT.
Two introductory speeches suggest the general social and interracial climate in the United States. It is against this backdrop that Project Inspire is described. Its purpose is the development of a vocational guidance component within the broader school curriculum. Its major objective is elevating the awareness level of students to the work world through the establishment of a comprehensive Human Resources Library. Specific institute materials included in this booklet are: (1) sample educational projects and techniques, including an educational simulation; (2) a listing of specific career orientation program objectives; (3) sample forms and letters for program participants; (4) a Connecticut task force report on manpower needs; and (5) the results of an end-of-the-first week evaluation of institute participants' knowledge and feelings about minority youth, employment, and poverty.
