Mobile Training Unit--A Total Community Approach to Career Guidance.
Ruff, Eldon E.; Elliot, Paul G.
The purchase of a Mobile Training Unit (MTU) allowed the Indiana Career Resource Center to disseminate Career Education materials throughout the State. This report presents the effects of that Mobile Unit Program. During the months between July, 1972 and May, 1973, the MTU made more than 67 visitations to Indiana schools and was used in a dozen professionally related meetings. With this initial experience, the following observations were made: the original design and purpose of the unit had been very functional; the efficiency of moving and presenting programs throughout the State had been demonstrated; and the visitations of the Mobile Unit to schools had a multiplying effect on other requests. In general the reception given to the services of the MTU has been enthusiastic. Recommendations made for the future are that: the servicing of students in addition to educators and community members is seen as a necessary addition; a more complete user evaluation should be attempted to measure the Unit's effectiveness in a variety of situations; and the Indiana Career Resource Center should facilitate the sharing of ideas among participants in neighboring career education projects.
