SWAP: Study Work Advisor Program: Handbook for the Project Director, Sponsor, Employer, Parent or Guardian.
Boeyink, Joann; Welch, William
The guide, part of an exemplary career education program, describes the Student Work Advisor Program (SWAP) which is designed to provide junior high school students with an exploratory work experience inside or outside the school setting. A two-page introduction explains the role of the program director, teachers, helping staff, volunteer sponsors from the community, employers, and parents in assisting students to explore the world of work. One-page presentations describe the responsibilities of the project director, the student helpers, the parents, the sponsors, and the employers. Suggestions for group guidance activities and procedures for selecting students are provided. Sample forms deal with: teacher's recommendation of student; individual student information, overall student performance, student evaluation, parent or guardian permission, cover letter for parent evaluation of SWAP program, parent evaluation, sponsor evaluation, employer evaluation of student helper, and employer's evaluation of SWAP. Five appendixes include: a student application for an interview with the program director, a job description for a student helper, a daily student log sheet for the library and main office work stations, and student helper duties.
