Planning for Life: A Compendium of 1998 Nationally Recognized Career Planning Programs. Fifth Edition.
National Consortium of State Career Guidance Supervisors, Columbus, OH.
The "Planning for Life Recognition Program" is dedicated to providing career guidance practitioners with tangible examples of effective career planning tools and methods to improve and expand their programs. A variety of career planning program ideas are presented in this compendium. Information from 12 applications chosen by the 1998 review team are abstracted and presented in an easy-to-use format. Because "Planning for Life" is designed to encourage collaborative career planning processes that help youth and adults become active participants in planning their futures, there is special focus on community collaboration. Procedures, program characteristics, and the "Seven Cs of Career Planning" are presented. National honorees include programs for pre-kindergarten through grade 12 and segments of that range, generally secondary schools. For each program the following information is summarized: (1) "Overview"; (2) "Program Characteristics" including clarity of purpose, commitment, comprehensiveness, collaboration, coherence, coordination, competency, and program features; (3) contact information; and (4) commercial and noncommercial materials utilized. Appendices include: "Key Contacts," which includes information for all 1998 applicants; "State Career Guidance Supervisors"; and "U.S. Army Recruiting Command Education Services Specialists." (EMK)
