Reflecting on the biblical concept of “shalom”, students will develop the skills necessary to assess a local community. This approach is guided through the development tools of community assessment (listening to the community) and project design, monitoring and evaluation (responding with the community to a limitation). In the first semester students will attend a 2-day seminar on practical aspects of community assessment in the first semester. In the second semester students will participate in a second 2-day seminar on design, monitoring and evaluation of a project to meet a community limitation. For 20 hours each semester students will partner with a community-based organization to assist in the development of a community assessment report and a project design document. Student will be expected to write an analytical reflection paper at the end of each semester based on field-based experience and reading. Limited to students in the MTS in Development Program at Wycliffe College.
