The purpose of Project Outreach is to allow students to learn about themselves and psychology by becoming involved in community settings. Outreach students engage in real work in the community, designed to meet community needs. As all sections of Project Outreach — PSYCH 211 are for 3 credits (on a credit/no credit basis), the academic requirements for the course are uniform across all sections (except Exploring Careers, section 005) and include four hours of fieldwork placement, one hour of discussion section, and one hour of lecture each week; in the Careers section, students learn about themselves in relationship to future potential careers, and explore the social-psychological contexts in which work occurs. Attendance at your section is mandatory. Readings, a mid-term project, and a final exam will be assigned. The Graduate Student Instructor for each section may state additional section requirements in class. (Course website is: http://sitemaker.umich.edu/projectoutreach/home).

Students will work with children ages 2-5 in community preschools and daycare centers. These placements offer hands-on experiences with a diverse group of children and the lecture series explores a variety of topics that influence child development. The placement sites vary in terms of the populations they serve, including “at-risk” children, children with specials needs, and children of international families with English as a second language.
