Community Outreach Program Proposal This assignment will help you to understand the valuable contribution you can make in your community by using your sociological knowledge, research skills, and problem solving skills to creatively propose a community outreach program that will help the needy in your community. In this assignment, assume that you have been offered the opportunity to apply for a $100,000 grant from a local Government initiative to fund new community projects. Develop a strong argument using the data gathered to support the creation of the community engagement program as well as design a program that will have positive outcomes for the community and the groups the program serves. The Proposal should be prepared in 3 Sections. Section 1 – In Week 4, Discussion 1 you were asked to do the following: Choose a social issue from the list provided that is experienced in your community: The issue I used is : Prior Civic Participation or Volunteering Encounters Build a defense of why this is an important social issue in your community that needs addressing by completing the following steps: Perform a Google search of the internet to find what Government and local data is available on the issue or the group of people it affects. Does it affect a subgroup of people more than others? [For example: youth, elders, different races, cultures or genders?]. Take note of the data you find. Perform a Google search of the internet of community and political groups [Republican, Democrat, Green Party, etc…] which address this issue in their platform. What do they have to say? What are their perspectives? Find four scholarly articles from the University of Arizona Global Campus Library in which the social issue is generally discussed. Report this data fully in your paper/proposal. Some of the information you gather may be in data form. Here are some examples of how data can be presented in your paper/proposal: A table of all the variables you found (if you select this option, please do not copy and paste tables from the website. Rather, create your own table with all of your variables). [Choose – Insert/Table in MS Word; add as many columns and rows as you like]: Location: [examples] San Diego, Kern County, etc… Percentage Number (n=) Population (male): 45% 45,000 Population (female) 55% 55,000 Median Income $40,000 % of Population with College Degree 30% 30,000 Or you can avoid a table and prepare a bullet point list of all the variables you found… Location: Population: Male – 45% (n=45,000) Female – 55% (n=55,000)…etc. Now complete the following: Section 2 – Research existing community engagement projects which address the social issue you have chosen: Perform a Google internet search based on your social issue for example “community engagement youth” or “community programs hunger” Find two existing examples of programs that address the social issue you have chosen. [US programs are preferred, however, programs from another country are permitted.] Present these two programs, including where it is, whom it serves, and any information you can get on effectiveness and how it has helped the community. Section 3 – The Community Engagement Proposal/Final Paper Similar to the programs you researched in Section 2, create your own program and write a proposal to apply for the $100,000 government grant. For this part of the assignment, you are asked to get creative and design a program that – if money was not an issue — you think would be practical to implement and would help address the social issue you selected. Sections 1 and 2 will be integrated into this proposal.
