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.

BACKGROUND CHECKS: Many site placements interact with minors and the University of Michigan requires that all students enrolled in these sections pass a background check BEFORE they will be allowed to interact with minors at the site. Most sites perform the background checks during the orientation process, including a Department of Human Resources (DHS) clearance required by the sites.

TB TESTS: Site placements require students to obtain a TB Test with negative results prior to attending the site. Most sites will accept results less than one year old and which covers the entire time the student will be at the site. Plan to bring a copy of the letter with you the first time you go to the site. To arrange a TB Test go to the link provided to obtain information about locations: http://sites.lsa.umich.edu/projectoutreach/

Intended Audience:

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.

Class Format:

This course includes lecture, in class discussion, and fieldwork placement each week.
