Rural Student Vocational Program (RSVP) [and] Housing Guide for Parents and Students [and] Work Supervisor's Guide.
Rural Student Vocational Program, Wasilla, AK.
The purpose of the Rural Student Vocational Program (RSVP) is to provide rural high school vocational students with work and other experiences related to their career objective. Students from outlying schools travel to Anchorage, Fairbanks, or Juneau (Alaska) to participate in two weeks of work experience with cooperating agencies and businesses. They are placed in work stations related to vocational courses being offered in the rural high schools served by the program. Students receive no salary or stipend, but are provided round trip transportation, room, and board in RSVP or parent-arranged homes. The three pamphlets which make up this document describe the program, list the advantages to the participating students, list the advantages to industry and the community, discuss the housing parents' and the students' responsibilities, and describe the work station procedures. A checklist to be used by work station supervisors for student orientation is also included. (JW)
