November 2011: ASVAB-CEP Awareness Month

WHEREAS, the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery - Career Exploration Program (ASVAB-CEP) is a career development service which provides 10th through 12th grade students throughout the United States a full spectrum of career options to consider based on their current skills and abilities, while also measuring what they can accomplish with further education and training; and,


WHEREAS, funded by the Department of Defense and provided without direct cost to the state of Michigan or schools participating in the program,  the ASVAB-CEP is offered to students without any obligation or expectation to serve in the U.S. military; and,


WHEREAS, the comprehensive career direction provided by school counseling services combined with the ASVAB-CEP will likely lead to enhanced educational experiences, increased career satisfaction and adaptation to occupational change; and,


WHEREAS, the career development needs of Michigan's students are of utmost importance; during this month, we raise awareness of the ASVAB-CEP throughout Michigan and we encourage citizens to learn more about this valuable program;


NOW, THEREFORE, I, Rick Snyder, Governor of Michigan, do hereby proclaim November 2011 as ASVAB-CEP Awareness Month in Michigan.
