Each program is profiled in an abstract that includes some or all of the following: program name; grade level(s); audience (rural, urban, and/or suburban students); program overview; program characteristics (discussions of how the program illustrates each of the seven Cs of career planning, as well as discussions of commercial and noncommercial and/or local materials utilized and program features); and name/address of contact person.
