Role, Function, and Approach for Guidance in Career Development of Youth from Junior High Through Senior High. (Enclosure with March/April 1969 of "Ohio Guidance News and Views").
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
A neglected minority of our youth, those contemplating entry into the labor market at the end of secondary school, need an improved program to equip them to meet this labor market adequately. The role of guidance in the career development of junior and senior high youth includes: (1) helping the student to see himself as worthy, (2) helping students experience success, (3) helping students to find ways that school can make sense to them, (4) helping students consider and make decisions regarding the values of a work oriented society, (5) helping students develop an understanding of their own talents, and (6) helping students make choices from a wide range of alternatives. One of the most important functions of guidance for students headed towards entry into the labor market is to care about these students. Secondly, counselors need to seek these students out, and demonstrate their interest in them. Approaches to guidance for use with these students include: (1) the help and involvement of teachers, (2) the utilization of community resources, and (3) the offering of more relevant curricula.
