Rural Community Immersion Project Half Block
What’s this class about?
Would you like to be part a team immersed in a Colorado rural community and grounded in service-learning theory, with the goal of developing community projects that connect schooling and economic development? This Dynamic Half Block will take place initially at Colorado College, then relocate on January 9 to Springfield, Colorado, located in the Southeastern corner of the state.
CC students will team up with ten students from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Each team will be assigned a community and school, meet with students, teachers and community members to develop a strategic plan for school and community improvement. Here is the good news. Students who participate in this Dynamic Half Block will receive a $1,000 stipend at the completion of the proposal (January 18).
Housing, food, and transportation are covered. Students must apply in person to Dr. Mike Taber. Email Dr. Taber at email@example.com to make an appointment.
What are the times and dates?
All of Half Block: January 7-18, with class largely located in Springfield, Colorado.
Who should sign up for this course?
Anyone interested in nonprofits, community service, community-building, service learning, and the development of community projects – especially for a rural community.
