Guidance Needs of the Jewish Teenager
Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) agencies must partner with other agencies in order to provide Jewish adolescents with proper guidance on planning for their futures, and therefore a common understanding of the needs of the Jewish teenager is critical. The author notes the trend in the late 1950s of Jewish students attending college more frequently than in previous years in order to attain what they consider to be prestigious positions. Teenagers' goals have become "other-oriented," and they seek advanced education in order to market themselves to others and to be respected and accepted by others. JVS agencies and other organizations should help Jewish adolescents grapple with their individual needs and recognize values, not just prestige, as an orienting factor in their decision making process.
