In this report, descriptions are given of two career education projects in Syracuse and Yonkers, which are designed to serve as models for their respective areas, are transportable to other districts, and emphasize guidance, counseling, and developmental activities at the elementary level. Syracuse's Life Centered Curriculum program is presented as one in which all educational experiences, curriculum, instruction, and counseling are geared to preparation for economic independence, personal fulfillment, and an appreciation of the dignity of work. Activities in the Yonkers program are designed to: (1) Demonstrate the most effective methods and techniques in career education to meet the total student population needs, (2) demonstrate the most effective methods and techniques for retraining teachers, counselors, and administrators to infuse a total career education program, and (3) communicate career education philosophy and methods to career education practitioners. The report is divided into two sections--Summary of the Report and Body of the Report. Both sections give (in brief and extensive form, respectively) the following information for both projects: (1) Goals and objectives, (2) description of the general project design and procedures, (3) results and accomplishments, (4) evaluation, and (5) conclusions, implications, and recommendations for the future.
