Oakland Community Career Education Resource Center. Final Report.
Industry-Education Council of California, Burlingame.
A community career education resource center (CCERC), designed to expand the audience of career education programs to include adults and out-of-school youth, was developed in Oakland, California. The center was constructed as the hub of a network of existing services. Included in the network of over 300 agencies linked by the Oakland CCERC are the Oakland Public Schools, the Employment Development Department, the National Alliance of Business, the Oakland Youth Employment Service, the Community Careers Council, Oakland Adult School, and Peralta Colleges. Center services included simulation, counseling, occupational information, placement, teacher training, and providing experiences in the world of work. Examination of the development and operation of the Oakland CCERC combined with a national survey conducted by the project made possible the identification of some central principles concerning the formation of a CCERC. The Oakland CCERC expanded the career education audience and filled service gaps in the area of linking components, thus enabling existing agencies to function cooperatively and better serve and refer their clients. Six appendixes contain information on developing, implementing, and funding a CCERC. (MN)
