Proposal for a Mobile Assisted Career Exploration Unit.
Utah State Univ., Logan.
A pilot program is proposed to determine if a mobile guidance unit operating on a limited time schedule can provide a feasible means for increasing maturity of rural ninth grade students. The program is based on the hypothesis that students interacting for a short period of time with a counselor and a counselor aid will enhance their vocational development as measured by an increase in vocational maturity. Two samples of ninth grade rural students who are generally without full time counseling are to be used (one as a control group). The program is designed to help the student acquire experience in two basic areas: (1) knowledge of self and the world of work and (2) practice in utilizing this knowledge in prevocational decision making. The student will be exposed to career information, given aptitude and interest tests and interact with the counselor in individual and group sessions. The proposal is designed to involve parents. Also included are outlines for career exploration schedules, evaluation designs and cost estimates. (MC/Author)
