Vocational Guidance in a Family Agency

By Samuel Mopsick

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1947

This paper presents a description and discussion of an experimental program for vocational guidance and counseling, which is now a functioning program in a family agency, the Jewish Social Service Agency of Worcester, Massachusetts. This experiment in vocational guidance in a family agency was initiated because of a definite need that existed and for which no educational or social agency had previously assumed responsibility. Through broadening the scope of the agency's services, this program brought casework services, even though superficially in some instances, to a segment of the community that had had no previous contact with the agency. This enabled the agency to serve the community better.
