Project Reach (Career Guidance and Counseling Utilizing Retired Resource Persons).
Project Reach is based on the assumption that youth, adults, and other target populations will be assisted to a significant degree in knowing more about occupations and in making occupational choices more effectively through the planned interaction with trained retired resource counselors. The project will address three major problem areas: The need for work-oriented counselors, realistic and current occupational information, and the need for a more meaningful student-counselor ratio through which the student can be provided with the opportunity to obtain data to make meaningful occupational choices. The Board of Regional Community Colleges (Massachusetts) proposes to implement the concepts and methodology developed through Project Reach in a minimum of three community colleges. At each of the colleges selected, the project will function in or in close relationship with the existing guidance and counseling offices. Initial and operational phases of the project are described, and a work plan schedule and target dates are outlined for a 12-month period. Project evaluation, and results and benefits expected are also described. A listing of project director, key project staff, and advisory committee members is included. (TA)
