Career Guidance Strategies for Minority High School and College Students.
A review of research suggesting that career development and growth toward self-actualization among minority students may be delayed by environmental conditions is followed by the presentation of a planned career guidance program for minority college students. The formulation of course goals based on responses of 467 minority college students to the Counseling Needs Assessment Survey is described. Course modules designed to deal with each of 11 identified needs are discussed. The career guidance course curriculum is presented, beginning with the administration of the "Strength Barrage" and the California Occupational Preference System, along with strategies for examining jobs and career interests through use of the Occupational Outlook Handbook and by on-site job visits with adult role models. A randomized summary of course perceptions and evaluations of 247 students is included, as well as recommendations for offering the course to all upperclassmen. (NRB)
