Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The purpose of Career Day is to provide a safe learning environment for young viewers to become more informed about the gamut of possible careers available for them to explore. Career Day is a television program that introduces young adults to career exploration and awareness. Students often do not know what they want to do and are unsure of potential interests they may have that could be a career. Career Day provides an avenue to view experts in their respective fields as they discuss their work, the education/training to prepare for the job, and experiences that led them to choose their career. To encourage students to make informed decisions, young adults must be introduced to career awareness, such as the concept that success in most careers requires education and training (Fouad, 1995). As the National Alliance of Business recommended in its 1999 publication Preparing Young People for Tomorrow's Workplace, "Middle school is an ideal age at which to expose students to the challenging world of work" . The program's motivational and inspirational message of each guest empowers audiences of all ages to investigate career opportunities, which has been proven to enhance academic performance, facilitate high school completion and encourage postsecondary education (Broadening Career Horizons for Students in At-Risk Environments, O'Brien et al (1999). Each segment of Career Day delivers an educational and informational message that supports current social, intellectual and emotional aspects of children ages 13 and up. Attributes and advice emphasized by guests instill a grounded balance of priorities, dedication, and perseverance children can apply to their lives.
