Zeroing In On Students’ Needs: The 1998 Exemplary Career Guidance and Counseling Programs

Publication June 1999

One effective means of improving career development programs is to learn about exemplary program components, their successes and challenges, and specific strategies used. This publication assists in that effort by providing information about the 1998 exemplary career guidance and counseling programs named by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Center for Research in Vocational Education in collaboration with the National Association of State Career Development/Guidance Supervisors and the Association for Career and Technical Education (formerly American Vocational Association). Each exemplary program profile includes contact information and address, number and educational level of students served, number of counselors, curriculum materials (when available), program evaluation, brief description, and career development activities listed according to grade level, if applicable. Each activity is followed by a brief explanation.
