The Influence of Career Counseling Groups in STEM Areas on First-Generation College Students: An Exploratory Investigation

30-Minute Poster Session
Kara Ieva, Emma L. Kendrick, Jill E. Schwarz 
Career and college planning can be a daunting task for low-income and first-generation college students, particularly when their interests and talents may be in the STEM fields. Come hear the results of a qualitative study that investigated the influence of small-group career development counseling with 15 groups of high school students (n = 108) over a three-year period. The research study aimed to investigate the influence the group had on solidifying college plans (e.g., major, schools applied to), the network created (such people and mentors that students were able to identify to facilitate the college application process), as well as the group experience itself.
