Becoming: A Leader's Guide for High School Graduates.
Voight, Nancy L.; And Others
This is the leader's guide of a community-based guidance program designed to help high school graduates become aware of themselves and of educational and employment opportunities and to develop the strength to carry out the life changes they choose to make. It consists of four sections. In section 1, entitled "Becoming Aware," a series of group exercises to help program participants examine their personalities, values, interests, skills, and priorities is provided. Section 2, "Becoming Informed," presents information on discrimination and how to deal with it; trends in employment and education; decision-making skills; educational resources and how to compare them; and hints on job hunting, resume writing, and interviewing with prospective employers. The next section, "Becoming Strong," deals specifically with planning, seeking support, coping with stress, enhancing one's strengths, and minimizing one's weaknesses. "Becoming a Leader," the final section, covers information-gathering techniques, group organization strategies, interpersonal communication skills, planning and program information dissemination. The sub-section on planning contains detailed plans for leading activities contained in the first three sections. Appendixes provide lists of laws prohibiting discrimination, trade agencies, and books of interest. (A program participant's guide is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
