Raleigh-Durham Area Vocational Guidance Institute for Counselors of Minority Youth.
North Carolina State Dept. of Conservation and Development, Raleigh.
This institute was planned to assist public school counselors in their work with minority and deprived youth by providing information about employment conditions and opportunities in local geographical areas, by establishing regular communication lines between the schools and business and industry, and by furthering the counselors knowledge of the attitudes which these youth have towards employment, education, their place in society, and the world beyond their experience. To achieve these purposes, the series of Institute sessions included speeches, panel discussions, and group meetings with key business and industry personnel, and guided tours of plant and business operations. Additional sessions were concerned with minority group youth and their problems in planning for future work and minority group workers and their experiences in the world of work. Further sessions were concerned with the experiences of educational and government personnel involved with minority groups occupational orientations and placement. Detailed descriptions and evaluations of these sessions are included. (RK)
