West Virginia State Dept. of Education, Charleston. Bureau of Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education.
A model is presented which is intended to serve as a reference and provide guidelines for the establishment of community based vocational guidance and counseling programs in West Virginia. The first of six sections identifies and expands four components of the program: self-understanding, decision making, environmental awareness, and job enhancement skill development. Section 2 presents competencies necessary for a person to successfully function as a community agent. Six organization and management functions and ten provision-of-service functions are formulated in the third section. The fourth section discusses the interagency cooperation required for success of the entire model, noting personnel and responsibilities of public schools, vocational-technical schools, colleges, rehabilitative services, federal program, social and service organizations, employer and business groups, etc. A discussion of expected programs for the respective target populations (elementary, secondary, postsecondary, out-of-school youth, adult education, and other adult programs) is presented in section 5. The final section develops the summarized community career and vocational guidance model. The appendices include (1) explanations for the use and interpretation of the overview charts and their relationship to the model and (2) implementation strategies for the model. (LRA)
