The Developmental Career Guidance Project: An Interim Report.
Leonard, George E.; And Others
The Developmental Career Guidance Project objectives are: (1) to aid a selected group of inner-city high school students to raise and broaden their educational and occupational aspirations, (2) to develop a pilot program designated to better meet the needs of inner-city youth, (3) to involve the staffs of the participating schools in the program, and (4) to systematically evaluate the program. The first phase of the project involved a two-week workshop for school personnel. The main goal was to encourage these participants to look critically at their school program with an eye toward utilization of occupational and career as a focus for helping inner-city youth to raise their level of aspiration. The setting in Detroit, the personnel involved, the rationale and broad objectives for activities are discussed at length. Data tables are found throughout the booklet. Activities are described, including counseling and guidance, curriculum, community contacts, parent involvement, broadening perceptions, and dissemination of information. Three external evaluations of the program are given together with future plans. (KJ)
