High School Counselors in Under-Resourced Communities: Their Effectiveness For Students

Location

Auditorium Hallway

Department

McNair Scholars Program

Abstract

Research has shown that school counselors are essential in the lives of high school students; not only do they provide services academically, but they also assist students with their personal concerns in their life (Cholewa et al., 2016). High school counselors are vital in the lives of high school students, particularly in under-resourced communities; they also shape the lives of the students well after high school. We will examine how recent high school graduates from under-resourced communities experience interactions with high school counselors. Statistical analysis will be determined using qualitative data and the phenomenological approach. The research participants will consist of recent high school graduates between 18-19 years of age. A total of 10 participants will be recruited for the study. We predict that recent high school graduates from under-resourced communities did experience different interactions with their high school counselors.
