Since the Cameron Colored High School has no guidance set-up, this guidance program is presented to the school. It proposes the addition of practical courses to the curriculum and offers suggestions for directing boys and girls into gainful occupations for which they are best fitted and in which they can do their most satisfactory work and at the same time he happy. Every youth should be guided in selecting a life's work, and the best place to give the proper guidance is in the school. The counseling and guidance factors are of such vital importance that they should be administered by persons having necessary experience. The vocational status survey, mentioned in the introduction of this thesis, presented the following information: three percent of the Negro population are professionally employed, three percent are business operators, four percent are bootblackers, janitors, or drug store helpers. Thirty percent of the population is employed in domestic service work. Twenty-five percent of this number have had no training in domestic services. Out of this, thirty percent that are employed, twenty percent drifted into the work.
