The passage of the Vocational Education Act of 1963 broadened the emphasis of home economics education to include the development of occupational programs, a task which involved developing curriculum models, instructional materials, and teacher education programs. The hospitality Education Curriculum Development Project sought to expand employment opportunities via the Initiation of new programs in local school settings and to secure by means of monitoring local clinical programs, a reservoir of experience and information from which to generate guidelines for the above. The ultimate objective of the project was to extend opportunities for occupational preparation to high school students. The major outcomes from this project are the materials prepared and used in the activities, the educational growth experience by project participants, and the benefit to be derived by future projects by this type.
