This course involves a community based internship, readings, and a class seminar. The seminar and readings cover research methodologies useful when conducting research on, with and for communities. These include community needs assessment, analysis of census and other statistical information on communities, evaluation of programs offered by community organizations, and surveys of community residents. The community experience involves one visit per week to a community-based organization in Detroit to work on projects to improve the well being of children, youth and families. Projects can involve tutoring, developing outreach activities, or working in community education projects. Students in the course will work with one another on a research project designed to meet community interests. Results from this project will be shared with the community-based organizations and the university community through presentations and written reports. Transportation to the community internship is provided.
