An Implementation Guide for Career Awareness In-School Exploring Program.
Boy Scouts of America, Portland, OR. Columbia Pacific Council.
This document describes the implementation of an in-school program designed to give Portland, Oregon, high school students an overview of many different careers. The first two sections provide background information on career exploration within the Boy Scouts of America Exploring program. The rest of the document explains the implementation of the program in the Portland metropolitan area and provides supporting information and samples from its implementation in two high schools. (The program in Portland encompasses three program models, called the career awareness, the in-class exploring, and the self-image models that have been developed since 1969.) The implementation section provides such information as how to get a program started, which students would benefit from it, who can make a program work at a school, how to forge relationships between teachers and business people, which school to target, who should be on the advisory committee, how to evaluate and monitor the program, what sort of staff person to hire as a career awareness executive, and the benefits of the program. The document concludes with miscellaneous materials such as relevant newspaper articles and descriptions of program activities. (CML)
