There are two parts to this assignment, both parts must be included in one document.
1. In 1 page, double spaced, using APA, & 12 pt. font,
identify and describe the population at risk in the community
you chose to
explore for the Community Assessment
. Using information from materials you encountered,
describe two interventions targeted at improving the quality of life of the described population
from a social justice perspective. Be sure to cite your sources.
2. In 1-2 pages, after you have described two existing interventions, develop a method of advocacy or intervention for the population you are writing about in the Community Assessment (you are to write about what you, specifically, would do in terms of advocating for your chosen population and topic).
Would you say that the interventions that already exist are enough to meet the needs of the population? (be careful as there is usually never enough to meet the need)
Did you discover any gaps in services or resources for the population (explain)?
What will you do to solve the problems you have identified in your research throughout the semester?
Try to include unique suggestions for how you would intervene with this population and the issue.
Refer to Chapter 11 and discuss if you might use one of the approaches such as legislative advocacy, research, grassroots approaches, etc. Be creative in with your ideas.
Be sure to use in-text citations for any data or information you include, as well as a full reference for each source on the reference page you will attach at the end of this document.
