Thompson, Carmen; Jensen, David
Community-Based Educational Counseling for Adults (CBECA) is a program operated through the University of Wisconsin--Extension. CBECA explores educational options and adjustments for returning adult students, intending to help them overcome personal barriers to continued education and to assist them in making the what, how, when, and where of educational choices. Counseling services are extended to three dissimilar regions of Wisconsin, covering over 100 communities in 32 counties. Counselors from minority groups (Black, American Indian, and Spanish American) focus on their respective communities. In this booklet, the description of the CBECA program focuses on the needs that are met through CBECA, CBECA objectives, concepts and components of the program (Counselors, Counseling the Whole Person, Student-Oriented Counseling, Referral and Followup, Community-Based Counseling, Noneducational Institution and Agency Involvement, Working Relationships with Campuses and Schools, Building an Information Resource Network, Publicity, and Administrative Support); implementation of CBECA in Wisconsin (Area Selection and Analysis of Needs and Resources, Fiscal Planning, Campus and School Relations, Staffing and Training, Sites, Schedules, and Community Awareness), results and benefits (Enrollments, Clientele Variation, Influence on Educational Programs and Procedures, Cooperation with Noneducational Agencies, and Flexibility and Objectivity), and future CBECA plans.
