The guide includes the guidance and counseling framework that the National Center for Research in Vocational Education uses for identifying exemplary programs on all educational levels, a list of benefits of comprehensive programs, national standards and state models, and an inservice model for improving career guidance programs. It also includes resources to help in the improvement process, such as related legislation, exemplary programs, worksheets, a glossary defining 18 words, and a bibliography that contains 99 references.
