Steppin' Up and Moving On: A Career Education Program for the Urban, Noncollege-Bound Student.
Fisher, Patricia A.
This guide presents a counseling program model whose purpose is to increase the educational and career awareness of black, urban, female, high school students who will not attend college. The program consists of ten three-hour sessions that have four separate but interdependent components. The compontents are: (1) individual assessments, to help each student become more aware of her individual values, attitudes, aptitudes, abilities, skills, goals, and aspirations; (2) education and career information, to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the worlds of education and careers/employment; (3) skill building exercises, to expose students to, and give them an opportunity to participate in, selected cognitive, psychomotor, and behavioral skills needed to develop and improve their educational and career options; and (4) integrated experiences, in which (primarly through individual and small-group interactions with their peers and counselors) students explore their attitudes, feelings, and reactions to the three other components. It is expected that those who use this program as a model will modify it to suit their own needs. Materials for use in the sessions are included in the appendices. (CMG)
