Project Women--in a Man's World of Work. A Program to Develop the Career Awareness of High School Girls.
Hermon School Dept., ME.
This document reviews an attempt to provide a career awareness and guidance program specifically for female high school students. Groundwork was laid for the utilization of student aids in the guidance program. "Project Women" established and carried out the following objectives: (1) the identification of the career interests of 10th and 11th grade girls; (2) the development of an inservice career orientation to acquaint subjects (100 girls) with selected careers usually held by men; (3) provisions for subjects to learn about careers normally held by men from women presently earning their living in those fields; (4) the development of an inservice training seminar to help prepare to discuss, with other students, careers traditionally held by men; (5) the provision of a rotating cadre of paraprofessional student help (aides) to work with and through the guidance department; and (6) the development of a model for a career guidance program which might be adopted by other high schools. A list of suggestions for use by student paraprofessionals in their career awareness work is also presented. (Author/PC)
