Student Career Introduction Program. Program Year 1986-87. Annual Report.
Louisville/Jefferson County Office for Economic Development, KY.
The purpose of the Student Career Introduction Program (SCIP) was to introduce minority and female students to careers in engineering, accounting, architecture, medicine, law, and computer science. In the 1986-87 program year, 30 students (20 females, 10 males) were selected to participate; of these, 14 were minority members (10 females, 4 males). The program was divided into three components: preemployment training, on-the-job training, and post-employment training. The first two program components took place during the school year. The post-employment training took place in June 1978, at a college campus. Eight program results were as follows: 12 companies were added to provide job training; additional career fields were added to serve student career goals; 12 students were hired by job training companies after program completion; 23 participants graduated from high school and enrolled in college; 25 students had a 3.0 or above grade point average; a county resolution was passed requiring companies having contracts with the county to hire SCIP students; a student received a scholarship; and SCIP achieved national recognition. Four recommendations based on the findings were: increase flexibility of student hours; increase hours; improve post-employment training; and add a clerical position. (The following attachments form the bulk of this document: list of 51 SCIP program sites including street addresses and student names/funding; career exploration series schedule; form for post-employment training evaluation by students; publicity materials; the county resolution; 1987 Achievement Award notification letter; and student participant letters.)
