Youth... Vocational Guidance for Those out of School. Bulletin, 1936, No. 18-IV
Kitson, Harry D.
Office of Education, United States Department of the Interior
The youth studies conducted by the United States Office of Education uncovered numerous and varied efforts. Some of them are treated in other bulletins of this series. Those classified as vocational guidance are described in this bulletin. The specific aims of this bulletin are: (1) To set forth plans especially applicable to youth who are not reached by vocational guidance services offered in schools; and (2) to show particularly how nonschool agencies may operate in focusing the various forces of the community on this problem. The emphasis has been placed on "what to do" and "how to do it," all in terms of measures that actually have been put in effect. The bulletin is prepared not for the expert, but for the intelligent layman who sees the need for making vocational guidance available to young people and wishes to do something about it. He may not expect to apply the techniques himself, but, by reason of his prestige in the community, he may be in a position to assist in the coordination of forces that can bring about results. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
