Career Exploration in Computers Project. Final Report.
Hazard Community Coll., KY.
The Career Exploration in Computers Project assisted 146 young people between 18 and 21 who were employed during the summer in the Head Start program. The project introduced and reinforced the concept of career choice and broadened the perspective of those in data processing career tracks. Four populations were served: adults preparing for the General Educational Development exams; clients of the Rural Women Proprietorship Project; participants in Hazard Community College's Career Awareness Program for Single Parents and Homemakers; and high school teachers receiving curriculum enrichment inservice training. The report itself describes the project's goals and objectives, summarizes results, describes additional outreach generated by the project, and offers reflections on its future impact. Five appendices form the bulk of this document. They consist of: a list of career exploration workshops--January to September 1987; press releases; a letter of appreciation; materials on the Career Exploration Workshop consisting mainly of excerpts from the Vocational Biographies Career Finder Counselor's Manual; and the Career Finder Questionnaire for those entering the program.
