Career Resource Center at Nassau BOCES Southwest Area Center VEA Project No. CO-74-8e-867.
During 1973-74 school year, the Nassau N.Y. Board of Cooperative Educational Services experimented with a Career Resource Center at one area neighborhood center. In 10 months this Career Resource Center served 3, 132 students and 387 professional staff, and developed and experimented with four model programs in career counseling and guidance. The central project objective was to integrate the Career Resource Center concept into everyday pupil personnel services at one area center. Other objectives were: (1) to utilize a combination of group orientation, group counseling, aptitude testing and multimedia approaches to career education; (2) to demonstrate effective career counseling techniques to school staffs; and (3) to provide service to junior and senior high students including disadvantaged, handicapped and potential dropouts. Model programs described include counseling, career exploration, employability training, and decision making skills. Audio-visual, career guidance, and psychological test materials were available at this center for use by students and counselors. (GMF)
