In this study, the authors evaluated the Impact of 4 career development curricular strategies and emotional/instrumental support in preparing rural adolescents to make successful post-high school transitions. Curriculum strategies and perceived support helped 8th-, 10th-, and 12th-grade students attain critical aspects of career development, enhanced student satisfaction that their education was better preparing them to achieve future educational and career goals, and increased student intentions to enter post-high school settings that required greater levels of education and training. Girls reported earning higher grades and participating in more work-based learning activities and intended to enter post-high school training settings that required more education than did boys.
