Career Passports. The Job Connection.
Barton, Stephanie Lang
Experiences in developing a Career Passport project are described for three pilot communities. (A Career Passport is a listing similar to an adult resume that describes a young person's experiences, skills, abilities, knowledge, and work-related attitudes.) An introduction describes the concept and its three essential ingredients as they were developed in the three pilot communities: base of operations (organization or institution), employer involvement, and outreach to youth. Background information is provided, and project goals are outlined. The projects are then described as they were developed in the three communities: Worcester, Massachusetts; Lexington, Kentucky; and Santa Clara County, California. The first two provide a model for a community-based project and the third a model for a school-based project. For each community experience this information is covered: the community, project goals, and project description. Appendixes include sample materials from each of the three projects. (YLB)
