The Vocational Counseling of Adults and Young Adults. Counseling and the Junior College.
Thoroman, E. C.
There is a growing demand in all areas of business and education across the nation for increased, and continuing education. Junior colleges have taken a large portion of the responsibility for providing this wide range of education. As community-responsive institutions, they will continue to expand in this function. The junior college aims of providing (1) a general academic education for transfer to four-year schools, and (2) a variety of terminal technical courses, and continuing adult education for job maintenance or upgrading, imply a need for a wide, flexible curriculum and counseling services. The students at a junior college will also range widely in age, intelligence, motivation, and goals. Counseling must adequately fit the individual into this heterogeneous structure. Junior college counseling involves a broader base of information than senior college counseling in several areas: (1) admission, (2) educational planning, (3) personal adjustment, (4) vocational counseling, and (5) employment assistance.
