Parental Involvement Component. Ysleta Equity Seekers (YES) Program.
Designed for use by vocational counselors with parents of junior high students, this handbook includes activities written in English and Spanish covering parental influence in vocational choices. The first of three sections discusses increasing parental involvement in vocational education. Section II begins with advice for implementation of such a program for Mexican American parents to make them aware of factual information regarding women and work, realistic career choices for their children, their own child-rearing practices, and ways to reinforce their children's nonstereotypic activities. Parent recruitment and implementation steps are discussed. Materials written in English and Spanish are then provided for six 2-hour sessions. For each session some or all of the following are included: an agenda; a trainer's copy of the session agenda listing goals, purposes, activities, and materials; participant handouts; transparency masters; a trainer instruction sheet for each activity (purpose, group size, time required, materials, room arrangement, procedure); and an evaluation form. Session topics are orientation, child-rearing practices, the world of work, focus on the parents, focus on the child, and evaluation. The section concludes with program evaluation forms and an annotated listing of recommended audiovisual aids. Section III is a glossary written in English and Spanish. (YLB)
