Youth Guidance Systems. Implementation Report. A Proposed Model Program for Use in American Secondary Schools.
College Entrance Examination Board, Palo Alto, CA.
The Youth Guidance Systems' (YGS) major goal is the encouragement and facilitation of considered decision making by every student. YGS seeks to establish goals, programs, and evaluation procedures which ensure continued change and relevance. Four goals have been stated for YGS (two student-centered and two staff-centered) to: facilitate decision making; provide personal problem counseling; use school, home, and community resources; and maintain continuous evaluation. Strategies identified to realize these objectives fall in these categories: (1) planning, including administrative and policy level planning, curricular and operational level planning, and articulation level planning; (2) differential staffing, including the staff role of the teacher, the administrator, the guidance coordinator, the counselor, the counselor assistant, the support staff, and volunteer aides; (3) guidance services, consisting of the guidance curriculum (group guidance), group counseling, individual counseling, and home-school-community interaction; and (4) evaluation. Basic changes involved in adopting the YGS model to the school are identified. (SC)
