Providence Public Schools, RI.
A project (ARISE) designed to provide information, referral and counseling on the available resources and services in Providence and in Rhode Island for youth and adult residents of the City of Providence is presented. Objectives include: (1) To help adults improve their self understanding, verify their goals, make firm commitments to their objectives, and grow through education; (2) Assist clients to apply results of educational and/or vocational appraisal to selection of educational institutions and to planning of educational programs; (3) Make referrals to continuing education programs; (4) Inititate programs to prevent and help dropouts; and (5) Establish a clearinghouse of information and publish an up-to-date annual ARISE Directory of Adult Education Programs, Cultural Opportunities and Guidance Services. The course was charted, guidelines set up, and a model was constructed for counseling out-of-school youth and adults. Follow-up activities were engaged in to determine results of the services, to improve methods and procedures, and to establish immediate and future operational criteria. Strengths of the project were found to include: (1) the Directory, (2) the dialogue initiated between the project staff and the uneducated poor, (3) the initiation of TV High School, and (4) the quality of project management.
