Volunteers in College and Career Information (VICCI)!
San Francisco Unified School District, CA.
The Volunteers in College and Career Information (VICCI) is an innovative attempt to improve guidance services within San Francisco High Schools. To insure that the volunteers receive proper training and supervision, the program was placed under the direction of a credentialed counselor or project director. Three major results have been demonstrated by the project: (1) that it is possible to train and use volunteers to provide a variety of pupil personnel services; (2) that the service is desired and used by students and staff and is a success in its first year of operation; and (3) that flexibility is necessary to operate and that this is what VICCI lacks in school district operation. It is intended that VICCI be primarily an informal, "drop-in" service to students. This consists of basic college and career information, special research or extra help in exceptional situations, and a readily available "listening ear." (Author/BW)
