The Association of Junior Leagues and Career Education. Monographs on Career Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
This monograph is devoted to the Association of Junior Leagues (AJL), which is involved in both community voluntarism in career education and promotion of the concept of voluntarism. (Membership is composed of young adult women.) It begins with a presentation of the basic nature of AJL aimed at providing initial insights into its potential for use as a community partner in career education. A detailed discussion of AJL's Volunteer Career Development Course follows, which includes both adult and youth models. The next section identifies concerns voiced by AJL members at several miniconferences. These include (1) career development as a lifelong process, (2) greater emphasis by career education on voluntarism; (3) more support for and involvement from top corporate executives regarding career education, (4) need for systematic plan for community linkages by career education, and (5) need for teacher training in career development. Eleven possible contributions of AJL to career education are then outlined. Next, action ideas for Junior League/career education partnerships are presented. The monograph concludes with consensus views of AJL members and K-12 Career Education Coordinators concerning AJL as a partner in delivery of career education. (YLB)
