Y.E.S., Inc. Guidebook. A Youth Employment Skills Media and Outreach Project.
Kissam, Edward; Richardson, Penelope L.
Originally intended to be used with a national television drama mini-series, the guidebook can be used alone to improve student attitudes toward education and career-oriented skills. It is targeted primarily to Black and Chicano junior and senior high school students. The project stresses that development of oneself is most important to the development of a career. The guidebook can be copied and reassembled to accommodate specific program needs. In section 1, a summary is given of each television program, followed by discussion questions, suggested activities, problem situations, and a thought for the day. Section 2 provides worksheets to help students rate things of importance in their lives, examine the meaning of success, learn about the world of work, improve problem-solving skills, give an oral history, consider role models and mentors, and identify career goals, skills, and talents. The third section explains how the guidebook can be used for learning/work experience programs; business/community partnerships; school classrooms; summer youth, recreation, and camp programs; short, job-search workshops; and counseling workshops. In addition, the document provides a model for learning, a discussion of the role of television, additional skill building activities, and an annotated list of resources and model projects. (LH)
