Project CELIT (Career Education Leadership Interaction Teams).
In an attempt to increase successful career education collaborative programming in elementary and secondary schools, representatives of several university counselor education programs planned and then implemented a training program for small teams. The ten teams chosen, all volunteers and consisting of business and government representatives and school staffs, each attended a team workshop and then proceeded to hold weekly team meetings. Each team used the meetings to plan collaborative community-school efforts and to learn by doing as they developed career education activities and programming such as field trips, work experiences, and classroom presentations. Four of the original ten teams continued providing leadership after the end of the first year. Project CELIT (Career Education Leadership Interaction Teams) demonstrated that persons in leadership positions can be trained to plan, implement, and evaluate collaborative career education programs, and that a significant number of them will retain strong commitment to programs of benefit to local youth.
