Exemplary Career Guidance Programs.
Donaldson, Kloyd N.; Edington, Everett D.
Youth from rural areas of the country need to learn about themselves, their work opportunities, and careers available to them. The National Rural Career Guidance Communication Network was designed and implemented to provide assistance to teachers, counselors, and administrators desirous of implementing or improving rural career guidance and counseling programs in their schools. The 70 exemplary programs in this directory were compiled by making direct requests for recommendations to: state directors of vocational education, career education, or guidance; counselor educators; intermediate agencies; and various other organizations with a rural and/or vocational education interest. Programs are listed by state in alphabetical order; included in the listings are contact persons, brief program descriptions, audiences, types of people involved, primary events and activities, facilities, materials, program costs, funding sources, and information related to publicity and observational requirements. An index provides references to programs with special emphasis. For programs with identical titles, distinction is made by adding the locality to the program title. All geographic regions of the United States are represented; programs are from high schools, school districts, state departments of education, and intermediate administrative units. (BR)
