Comprehensive Vocational Guidance Program for Model Cities. Interim Report.
Indianapolis Public Schools, IN.
The purpose of this project was to develop a comprehensive vocational guidance program which would: (1) expose students to a wide range of vocational experiences, (2) upgrade the self-image of disadvantaged students, (3) increase the vocational awareness of students, educators, and community members, and (4) provide students with employable skills prior to termination of their education. During the first year of operation, the following accomplishments were achieved: (1) Counselors are working in elementary and junior high schools which never had the services of a counseling program, (2) Students are able to see vocational opportunities first hand and observe people actually working, (3) Parents more readily accept vocational education along with academic education, (4) Students are more aware of vocational classes, are able to make wiser educational decisions, and are more aware of the need for at least a high school education, and (5) Administrators, teachers, students, and parents have come to accept counseling as a part of the regular educational program. The activities leading to these accomplishments are discussed, and sample curriculum materials are appended. (SB)
