Students in this section will work in teams to lead creative writing workshops at the Parr Highway Correctional Facility in Adrian on a weekly basis. The facility is a minimum — security prison that houses adult male prisoners who are serving short sentences, or will be eligible for parole within the next 18 months. At the prison, students will help inmates enhance their writing skills and creatively communicate their ideas. Students will be required to submit weekly creative writing assignments as well as fulfill other course requirements. In addition, the group will complete an anthology of inmate writing at the end of the semester that will be distributed to the participants at the prison. No previous experience is necessary.

Students will be expected to go to site on Wednesday evenings 5:30 — 9:30pm, (includes driving time). Transportation to and from site is provided by Project Community and coordinated through the section facilitator.

NOTE: Students must be at least 18 years old to participate in this section, due to volunteer requirements at the site.

NOTE: Permission to enter: All students must fill out a LEIN (Volunteer Service Application), which must be approved by the Department of Corrections before they can enter the prison.

NOTE: All students registering for this section will have a background check run by the facility. Any student who thinks he or she may not be eligible to participate should choose a section in another program area.

Students enrolled in SOC 389 are responsible for regular attendance in a weekly seminar as well as participation at a designated community service site for approximately 4 hours each week. In addition, students will complete weekly readings and reflective journal assignments, a midterm assignment, and a final paper/project.
