Case Studies in Practical Career Guidance, Number 2: Career Development Center Troy High School, Fullerton, California.
Arutunian, Carol Ann
The Career Development Center at Troy High School in Fullerton, California, is largely effective because of the variety and abundance of materials and resources located in the Center. However, the most unique feature of the program is the instructional course taught in the Center, "Life Decision Making." The course is an elective for juniors and seniors in the high school. The goal of the Center and its related course is to help students think about themselves and the direction that their lives will take, and in relation to this, to learn and participate in the decision-making process. All students may use the Center on a drop-in basis. The Center also offers programs in vocational training, occupational exploration, and work experience. (Author)
