Vocational Guidance Service (VGS), through a
grant from the Women's Educational Equity
Act of the U.S. Office of Education, is developing a program to facilitate the school-to-work
transition for disadvantaged high school senior
women. The program's goal is preparing women
for successful entry into the world of work,
particularly the world of non-traditional careers.
Career Shadowing is the basic technique to
be used to expose young women in this project
to a variety of career options in local industries
and companies. On these site visits, the women
will shadow and interview role models who are
employed in both traditional and non-traditional careers. Additionally, the women will participate in a group guidance program designed to
develop job readiness skills, increase self-confidence, and develop appropriate work attitudes
and behaviors. A follow-up study of program
participants as they enter their first work experiences will be done to evaluate the effect of
participation in the project on choice of careers
and success within these careers.
Sites for career shadowing are needed, especially centrally-located businesses on bus
routes that stay open until 5:30 or 6 p.m. If
you know of an appropriate site or for further
information, contact Teri Constable, Placement
Site Coordinator for the Transitions Project at
VGS, 659-1800, ext. 313.

groups represented will be Association for
Women in Science, National Council of Jewish
Women and Federally Employed Women.
Marchers will wear all-white clothing just
like the suffragists wore when they marched for
the vote in the early part of this century. Cowhand hats will be available for those who wish
to identify as Texans for ERA. Marchers staying over will leaflet and lobby in Chicago and in
