This report presents evaluative information of the effectiveness of the Career Awareness and Resource Education (Project CARE) program in New York City. The program served 346 students of limited English proficiency. Participating students received instruction in English as a second language ESL, native language arts (NLA), the content areas, and career education that had a particular focus on enhancing career skills. The project provided staff with materials on the education of LEP students and offered staff opportunities to attend conferences and workshops on the subject. Parents participated in Open School Day/Evening at the project's two sites, acted as chaperons on project trips, and participated in ESL classes provided to them by the project. Data show that Project CARE met its objectives for career advisement, career development, increasing appreciation of the American culture and citizenship, student attitudes toward school, dropout prevention, attendance, and parental involvement. The project partially met its content-area objective. Project CARE failed to meet its objectives in ESL and NLA. No recommendations are made. Appendices contain a list of instructional materials and class schedules. (GLR)
