Idea Book: Meeting the Occupational Information Needs of Disadvantaged Youth.
Pendergrass, John; And Others
The purpose of this book is to suggest ways in which vocational and career guidance counselors and program planners in education, training, and counseling programs can provide disadvantaged, out-of-school youth with reliable, up-to-date information about the job market. Much of what is presented here relates to strategies and products developed and used in the Youth Career Information Project (YCIP) operated by the Education and Work Program of the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory. Other information was contributed by similar programs throughout the country or was obtained through a literature search on outreach strategies and occupational information delivery. In chapter one, suggested program responses to youth needs for occupational information, based on experiences at the YCIP sites and of selected agencies from other States, are provided. In chapter two, outreach guidelines and strategies are discussed. In chapter three, conclusions that have influenced the outreach and delivery strategies described in the earlier chapters are discussed. This last chapter is based on a needs survey that was conducted as one element of YCIP and on opinions expressed by staff members of the demonstration sites serving disadvantaged youth in YCIP. Listed in an appendix are contributing agencies and resource materials. (CMG)
