Preparing Young Women For Tomorrow: A Handbook of Career Counseling Strategies for Intermediate and High School Women. Monograph Number 9.
This guide focuses on the needs of high school women students. It attempts to help counselors develop open attitudes and non-discriminatory policies and practices in educating and training women for satisfying, non-stereotyped careers and life-roles. The manual provides separate, creative program strategies that vary in importance, difficulty, commitment to policy change, traditional nature, and pre-implementation planning; none is prerequisite to another. Strategies are offered to initiate a vocational readiness program, to expand career options for women, to involve women students in career guidance policy-making, to organize student career awareness groups, to introduce more diversity in role model activities, to encourage mentoring, to locate sex-fair guidance inventories, to remediate the curriculum with women's studies, to develop school-community cooperative activities, to provide inservice training for staff, and to obtain current and specific career resource material for young women students. To aid the final strategy, seven separate resource lists suggest a basic book collection, films, miscellaneous program materials, other publications and resources, national women's professional organizations, national women's organizations, and national organizations for job discrimination and women's rights.
