This publication contains a synthesis of information collected by the National Entrepreneurship Education Consortium on the efforts of local vocational education programs in the area of entrepreneurship education. The programs described represent all instructional levels and all areas of the country. A directory of programs listed by state is provided. This is followed by a directory that lists programs in accordance with the five stages of the National Center for Research in Vocational Education's lifelong entrepreneurship model, i.e., programs focusing on basic skills, competency awareness, creative applications, start-up, and growth. Also included in this directory is a brief section on pertinent teacher education programs. A set of program abstracts constitutes the next sections; 103 programs in 20 states and 2 foreign countries (Jamaica and Canada) are presented. Each abstract contains information on the organization sponsoring the program, a contact person, and a description of the program's goals and curriculum. A 13-page section on curriculum and resources used covers the following materials: books and texts, curriculum guides, publications, films and videotapes, computers, transparencies, and programs. Twelve 1987 and eighteen 1988 state leadership activity reports are included. The entrepreneurship program questionnaire used to collect the data in this guide has also been provided. (MN)
