Career Development--School/Community Concept.
Evans, Barbara; And Others
This presentation outlines a two week, no credit program offered to secondary students in the Shawnee Mission School District, Shawnee Mission, Kansas, which is designed to develop a "Career Oriented Individual." The program encompasses three phases of development: (1) awareness; (2) exploration; and (3) decision making. Its goal is to increase the career options available to individuals through a wide range of school and community resources. A Career Education Advisory Committee, which consists of parents who are engaged in a variety of careers, has been established for each school. Their expertise has proved to be a valuable asset to the program. The utilization of self-awareness inventories and occupational information from a variety of sources, in addition to the use of community resources, has contributed to the program's success. A list of suggested improvements is included. Slides designed for use with this presentation are not included. (KRP)
