Discussion 2 Assignment and peer response
In this course, you will be required tosubmit a Community Need Project Proposal designed to hypotheticallyimprove some aspect of your community. This Community Need Project willrequire you to identify a need, develop an approach to solving thisproblem, and create a measure to evaluate the effectiveness of yourapproach.
- What are problems or needs in your community that might lendthemselves to your class project? Who are the important people withinyour concept? For the discussion this week, please submit two to three project ideas to the class for feedback.
- Jacqueline Novogratz and Chef ChadHouser from the Momentum Café advocate for providing people with certaintools for solving problems. How would you describe theirapproaches? What aspects of these approaches can you potentially applyto the problem/need you are considering?
Rememberthat when we are thinking in terms of our community it does not have tobe the whole city, it could be at your church, at your child’s school,in your neighborhood, etc.
Here is one example from a small town.One rural town in New Hampshire saw a need to have trick or treating intheir community. The houses were spread too far apart for kids to trickor treat in almost all areas of the town. A group got formed “trunk ortreat” in which town’s people drove to the town hall and with candy inthe trunks of their cars and jack-o-lanterns by their cars. Kids couldget lots of candy and those folks could participate in a traditionalHalloween activity. The point of this example is that the problem orneed does not have to be monumental, just something that improves thelife of a community.
