Guidance as an organized movement is still in its infancy. This does not mean that there has not been a need for guidance before the twentieth century. In fact, this need was recognized and met with informal guidance since the dawn of history. It has been working hand in hand with other teaching procedures in furthering the needs of the individual and society.|By our very nature as social beings we cannot reach our goals without some assistance from others.|If this fact is true for human beings in general, how much more is it true for adolescents? Their judgments are immature; their knowledge of educational and vocational opportunities, very narrow; and the consciousness of their own abilities and limitations, in the majority of cases, an unknown quantity. Adequate guidance, therefore, during the period of adolescence is perhaps more essential than elsewhere in our school system.
