Assignment 1: Community Partnerships
Included in this module are the suggested readings regarding community partnerships, along with examples for how to incorporate partnerships with community resources and your agency.
Using at least five resources from the professional literature, respond to the following in a minimum of 400 words as it relates to the Human Services field. The literature may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, and .gov):
- Using the same position in the Human Services field that you discussed in the M1 Assignment 2 Discussion, assume that you are the person at your agency responsible for developing partnerships with the community. Discuss a minimum of five needs your agency has that the community can meet. Keep in mind the mission and vision of your agency.
- In your area, find a minimum of one resource to meet each of your agency’s five needs. Provide the way the community partner would meet your needs along with the title and website of the community partner.
- Provide three ways in which you would “sell” your agency to the community. For example, what area events would you attend to inform the community about the mission and vision of your agency?
