The Career Institute: A Collaborative Career Development Program for Traditionally Underserved Secondary (6-12) School Students
Rivera, Lourdes M.; Schaefer, Mary Beth
Journal of Career Development, v35 n4 p406-426 2009
Career development is integral to students' academic and social-personal development, and addressing students' needs in this area is recognized as an important responsibility of the professional school counselor. However, efforts to address students' career development tend to be lacking or services are provided in a disconnected manner. This article provides a brief overview of the literature on career development in schools and presents a schoolwide career development program that is integrated into the school curriculum, collaboratively implemented with teachers, and begins in the sixth grade. The value of this programmatic effort is discussed, and recommendations for program development are offered. (Contains 1 table.)
