Based on eight goals assessed as desired outcomes for a career-educated person, this guide is an outline of how an educational organization or community agency might develop a career decision-making program for adults. Both parts of the guide's purpose--meeting educational needs and meeting community needs--are discussed, including what is involved in a comprehensive career education program, comprehensive career education services, a program to meet community needs, and community setting services. The following section gives the format for developing a career education program. Eight goals are stated: (1) awareness of personal values, (2) skill and ability awareness, (3) career and educational opportunity awareness, (4) demonstration of decision making skills, (5) demonstration of responsbility and work satisfaction, (6) demonstration of a life role direction, (7) demonstration of job or education seeking skills, and (8) personal job placement. Sub-goals, individual and group activities, references, and resources are then provided for each of the goals. Extensive appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the guide, include measurement instruments, sources of information, goal-attaining recommendations (summary reports of working committees), adult performance level (APL) program objectives for functional competency, and two surveys useful as group discussion tools.
