Nontraditional Career Development Programs for Women. A Career Exploration Project for Disadvantaged Youth.
Sarno, Marie R.
This paper is a discussion of a Career Exploration Project jointly undertaken by the Seal of Ohio Girl Scout Council and the Division of Continuing Education of Columbus Technical Institute during the Summer of 1975. The participants were economically disadvantaged young women between the ages of 11 and 17. The main objective was to increase participants' awareness of self, others, career options, and educational alternatives, as well as the factors that go into a career decision. A variety of resources and programming ideas were used, including exploration of career areas represented at Columbus Tech and exposure to actual work settings. An outline of the program content is given in the paper, as well as a discussion of some of its highlights, problems and outcomes. (Author)
