InterAmerica Research Associates, Rosslyn, VA.
This document consists of sixteen "mini-documents," each of which represents a set of suggestions for education practitioners at the state and local levels, to use in entering into "community partnerships" with a state or local unit of a national organization for the purpose of providing career education to elementary/high school students. Originally referred to as "master plans," the mini-documents are presented as "starter suggestions" aimed at giving career education practitioners some background information concerning each national organization and some beginning ideas of how they could serve as "community partners" in a comprehensive career education effort. Organizations profiled include the following: American Legion/Legion Auxiliary, Girl Scouts of the USA, National Retired Teachers Association, American Association of Retired Persons, National School Volunteer Program, Chamber of Commerce of the United States, Women's American Organization for Rehabilitation Through Training (ORT), National Association for Industry/Education Cooperation, National Center for Service-Learning, National Alliance of Business, Junior Achievement, Inc., Boy Scouts of America, Rotary International, Association of Junior Leagues, AFL-CIO, National Institute for Work and Learning, and 4-H.
