The report describes the Mission Possible program, an alternative career exploration program for secondary school students in Cass County, North Dakota. The program is a voluntary, flexible one in which students learn about careers at "career sites" in business and industrial establishments according to the following alternatives: observation, internship, released time, holiday and vacation period employment, or part-time employment. The report includes a review (with commentary) of the program's five objectives: identifying creative work experience approaches with business, industry, community, and civic organizations; improving student and employer satisfaction; identifying alternative work experience programs; developing procedures to utilize employment information; and providing inservice activities and services. The report includes a timetable for the implementation of the program from June 15, 1975 to May 1, 1976. It also includes six recommendations for expanding the program and reassessing its objectives in light of potential expansion. The report closes with a brief summary and conclusions. Almost three-fourths of the document is comprised of the following appendixes: map of Cass County, promotional material, letters and forms, appointment reminder card, legislative documents, questionnaire results, school participation chart, status report, letters received from community participants and school administrators, and lawyer's opinion of school liability.
