Ready the Scenario Carefully and create the project based off of it
The scenario provides a background of an organization/agency and the results of a needs assessment. From this, you will develop a program to address one identified need. The program cannot be the same or similar to your team’s program. Be creative and come up with a new idea. There are a series of prompts (questions) that will help guide you.
You are the parks manager for the City of El Mirage. This is a small city in northwest metro phoenix. The agency's mission is "to promote healthy lifestyles, increase educational attainments, strengthen community image and establish a livable community." The historically Hispanic population presents a community of strength through its strong social networks and rich family traditions. But the community has grown significantly, quadrupling in the past 4 years with new developments bringing many new families to the small city.
An asset-based community assessment was conducted to identify emerging needs of local residents. The assessment identified a number of challenges the city is facing.
These include: (choose one)
Inadequate recreational programs
Lack of youth supervision and mentoring
Illegal drug use
Poor police presence and response time
Better education needed
lack of public transportation
Segregation of old and new neighborhoods
Need for senior services
The parks agency has been given a large grant for city-wide program development and implementation. As the park's manager, you have been given the task to develop a program to address one of these needs that aligns with the park's mission.
I have attached lecture notes to help guide you, but make sure you know how to create the project and do your research to make sure every task is correctly done and every graph/picture is inserted. Reach out if you have any questions.
