  3. 3. F Career Launch G STATEMENT OF SATISFACTORY COMPLETION Participants in Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) learning opportunities must be present and actively participate throughout the entire learning experience. BGCA has developed performance measures to monitor participant achievement and to help ensure that the learning experience is efficient and effective. Performance measures ensure economical choice of instructional content, provide a basis for participant accountability during and after instruction, and help align participant achievement to strategic goals. The following are among the types of assessments used: • Essay • Fill-in-the-blank • Multiple choice • True/false • Demonstrations • Oral response • Matching Awarding Continuing Participants must satisfactorily complete the entire learning Education Units experience before either a BGCA Verification of Learning Credit (VLC) or Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is awarded. In order for participants to receive a CEU credit, a participant must also demonstrate learning outcome(s) was (were) met. BGCA does not award partial credit for learning experiences. YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCIES PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION This session contributes to the development of knowledge and skills needed to demonstrate competency in the following areas: YD6 Plan, Develop, Implement and Evaluate Programs, Services and Activities YD 6.1 Effectively plan programs, services and activities YD 6.2 Effectively develop programs, services and activities YD 6.3 Effectively implement and administer programs, services and activities YD 6.4 Effectively monitor and evaluate programs, services and activities.

  4. 4. F Career Launch G INTRODUCTION Importance CareerLaunch is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) career exploration and job readiness program for teens. PPT 2 & 3 CareerLaunch is a key program in BGCA’s Impact 2012 strategic plan and academic success initiative. CareerLaunch builds on the U.S. Department of Labor Secretary’s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) report that identifies the skills and knowledge required for meaningful and productive work in today’s labor market. Although the commission completed its work in 1992, their findings and recommendations continue to be a valuable source of information for individuals and organizations involved in education and workforce development. Facilitator’s Note: Please inform participants that along with the Participant’s Guide, each of them have the CareerLaunch Quick Reference Guide Staff and Teen’s Guide on the table before them and that you will be exploring these resources in more detail during the next lesson. To introduce, use content from Importance (PPT 2) and What the Experts Say (PPT 3). Note the statistics on the slide are a little bit different from what is in the text. How You Can Make a Boys & Girls Clubs are uniquely positioned to make a difference Difference in the future workforce by providing their members with PG: Page 4 opportunities to explore a variety of career options, to make sound educational decisions and to practice job readiness skills. What The Experts Say According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 21.3 million jobs will be added to the national workforce by 2012. As baby PPT 2 & 3 boomers begin transitioning into retirement and leaving the PG: Page 4 workforce in large numbers, a need for new, skilled and trained workers is crucial. Couple this with concerns about globalization and off-shoring of jobs; even more critical are the increasing numbers of youth who are not graduating from high school. This is at a record 45-50% among some groups, leaving them unskilled and untrained. The workforce deficit is unlikely to be filled by the upcoming generation that has been referred to as “techno-peasants” – youth growing up in a world of high tech with low reading, math and problem-solving skills. Session Goal The goal of this session is to help Clubs increase members’ PPT 4 academic success through goal setting, career exploration and PG: Page 4 job readiness. Facilitator’s Guide: Page 4 of 21 © Boys & Girls Clubs of America
  5. 5. F Career Launch G Session Overview With funding from the Gap Foundation, BGCA developed the PG: Page 5 CareerLaunch program for teens ages 13-18. This program provides a broad range of tools and activities for staff and volunteers to guide teens in exploring a variety of careers, making sound educational decisions, and preparing for the world of work. CareerLaunch is designed to be easy to deliver, flexible enough to accommodate different Club situations and highly engaging. Session Outcome By the end of this session, you will be able to develop an action PPT 5 plan to implement the CareerLaunch program.

BGCA PG: Page 6 recommends that all 22 activities be used in sequence for best results; however, three program implementation plans are provided for Clubs with varying levels of resources and capacity for teen programming.

Lesson Objective By completing this lesson you will be able to describe PPT 8 the CareerLaunch Program. PG: Page 6 Importance of “Breaking the Ice” When working with teens, it is important to break the ice as quickly as possible. Because of this, you want to PG: Page 6 involve the group in an activity that will make connections among group members and demonstrate that participation is expected, safe and interesting. Also, because participants will be working together with teens for several weeks, it is important that they get to know each other better and begin to feel comfortable as a group. There are many ways in which to achieve this. An example ice breaker can be found in your Quick Reference Guide on page 61.

  16. 16. F Career Launch G Lesson Summary As you work with your teens in the areas of career PPT 20 planning and academic success, remember this is a PG: Page 11 transitional time in their lives.

Moreover, it will help you: • Lend credibility to your project; • Increase efficiency; • Provide accountability; • Identify the tasks needed to accomplish objectives; and • Get organized by indicating project milestones and timelines to keep you on track. Your action plan will include the identification of the CareerLaunch implementation level, an overall objective and items from get started checklist and action steps (see pages 53 – 60 in the Quick Reference Guide. R.A.S.I. Tool CareerLaunch, like most youth development programs, is most successful when it is the collective PPT 25 effort of many people. When working with a team of PG: Page 12 people to accomplish a goal, much confusion is caused by unclear roles and decision making processes. R.A.S.I. (Responsibility, Approval, Support, Inform) is a tool for clarifying these in advance wherever possible. R: Who is responsible for the task or issue? (This is probably you, but it may be another staff member, volunteer or teen member.) A: Who is accountable? Whose approval do you need to accomplish this task? Someone can be accountable, but not responsible for getting the work done. Only one person should be accountable; otherwise, nobody is accountable because the parties blame each other. (This may be you, or it may be your supervisor. Facilitator’s Guide: Page 17 of 21 © Boys & Girls Clubs of America
