Journal of School Counseling, v15 n16 2017
This article focuses on determining the school counseling activities perceived as important by a sample of Latino high school students. The researchers explored student perceptions through the administration of a survey instrument created for this project to better understand Latino students' perceptions and satisfaction with school counselor activities. The instrument consisted of items aligned with domains described in the American School Counselor Association's National Model and current literature on Latino adolescents' experiences. According to the results, students indicated that they believed college and career activities to be important, however were not satisfied with how their school counselors provided those activities. The results, limitations, and suggestions for school counselors are provided.
