Project #49887 - Service Learning Project

Service Learning Project Summary: Each student, after conducting their community service, will prepare a 4-page paper (excluding title page and reference page) summarizing their experience.

The paper should include the following elements:

ï‚· Description of the organization (structure, history, mission, activities, location)

ï‚· Description of the service(s) performed and what the student learned from it

ï‚· Application of at least one concept from the course

ï‚· The format of the paper must be in ASA (American Sociological Association) style

 

The agency I have selected is Healthy Families Partnership in Hampton, Virginia. The mission of the agency is to ensure that all children in Hampton are born healthy and enter school ready to learn. My possible volunteer role in serving this organization would be to assist in Family Support Workers with home visits that will include parent child activities and providing child development knowledge to parents.

Hampton Healthy Families Partnership is location in Hampton Virginia. The organization provides services to eligible parents (moms) prenatally and after birth. Parents are allowed to stay in the program until their child goes to kindergarten. The Family Support Worker provides the parent with referrals on as needed bases.

The services provided by Family Support worker are providing the parent with activities that encourage child development. The Family Support worker provides activities that promote parent child interaction. The activity I observed was stacking blocks. The Family Support Worker explained to the parent that the activity promotes fine motor skill. Cognitive development was encouraged as they counted the blocks. The Family Support Worker conducted a developmental screening on the 6 month old that was stacking blocks. The developmental screen was called the ASQ. The 6 month old female scored within a normal range and no outside referral was needed. After spending and hour with the family the Family Support Worker scheduled a visit with the Mother for the next week.

 

After returning to the office the Family Support Worker documented the visit in detail by explain the activity provided and the parent child interaction that was observed. In the visit that I observed the parent was very active in encouraged and helping the 6 month old to stack the blocks.

 

I also have the Powerpoint to go with this project.
