The year 2001-02 marks the Adult Career Counseling Center's (ACCC's) nineteenth year of service, during which career advisors saw 102 community clients for over 300 hours of counseling. ACCC provides advising services at no charge for adults who are seeking guidance with career-related issues, including career exploration and planning. The computer-assisted career guidance programs used in ACCC are Career Explorer (Bridges), Michigan Occupational Information System, and, coming soon, Strong Interest Inventory. Other services include use of other assessment instruments; a collection of print materials; telephone assistance; and referrals. For a number of years, ACCC and the Practicum Counseling Center (PCC) have had a mutually beneficial partnership, with referral of ACCC clients to PCC for their more comprehensive array of services. Most clients have rated their overall experience, computer guidance programs, and other ACCC resources, and advisor skills as outstanding. Marketing and public relations have included public service announcements, bulletin boards, brochures, and workshops. (Appendixes include an ACCC disclosure statement, auxiliary grant-supported services, and brief report of the Pontiac ACCC.) (YLB)
