Case Studies in Practical Career Guidance, Number 7: Developmental Career Guidance Project Detroit Public Schools, Detroit, Michigan.
Scott, Thelma J.
The Developmental Career Guidance (DCG) project is a K-12 career guidance demonstration project operating at three high schools and 18 feeder schools in the Detroit Public School District. Directed from Wayne State University, DCG has centers at the high schools and each of the feeder schools. From the centers, students voluntarily can draw materials when they are seeking career-related information. The program provides students with a variety of project-related activities such as field trips, individual and small group counseling, career information assemblies, and a Negro History Week program. DCG project purposes include: (1) to increase student awareness of all phases of work, and (2) to help students develop a realistic and functional awareness of themselves as worthwhile human beings. A high degree of parent involvement and significant relationships with business and industries are unique features of the program.
