Students in this section will help to develop and implement children’s programs in Avalon’s newly-built Carrot Way affordable housing development in Ann Arbor. Students will be expected at site once each week. The after-school program at Carrot Way is from 4-7pm, Tuesday through Thursday, (in order of highest to lowest priority are: Tue., Wed., then Thurs.). Students in this section will need to sign up (on the first day of class) to go to site one day per week at that time. To allow time for traveling to and from site, students should be available 3:30-7:30pm on their selected day of service. Students may need to attend the initial orientation at a different time than their regular service time, but the orientation will be set (by the section facilitator and site contact) considering when students are available.

During the after-school program, students will help the young residents of the Carrot Way community (ranging K-8th grade) with homework, and then participate in an outdoor walk or arts & crafts activity. The participating children go to school in the Ann Arbor Public School system, primarily at Northside Elementary and Clague Middle School.

Transportation is offered by Project Community and coordinated through the section facilitator.

Avalon Housing, a non-profit community development corporation, provides housing and supportive services to extremely low-income residents in Washtenaw County. Many residents have mental and physical disabilities and the majority have been homeless. Avalon's “housing first” philosophy prioritizes permanent affordable housing and minimizes evictions to provide stability for its residents. Carrot Way is one of seventeen sites for Avalon, which is an organization in its 14th year of operation. Carrot Way has 30 units and maintains a focus on families. All support services are optional for residents.

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

If you have questions, contact Project Community (pcinfo@umich.edu). In your email, please give the name of the section about which you are inquiring.
