This evaluation examined the 1987/88 Career Beginnings program, a program that targets high school juniors with average academic performance and assists them with entering college and upgrading their academic choices or with finding employment. Students from 24 school sites were assigned to experimental or control groups. The majority of the study participants were African American students. The findings revealed that during their senior year the control group received more similar services than anticipated when compared to the experimental group. Results for college enrollment rates, educational aspirations, and employment are reported.
