>> Download Week 5 Assignment Template

Throughout this course, you have been working toward your final project. This week, you will be submitting a rough draft of that project. Using the information from your outline, your bibliography, and your literature review, combine the information to create a rough draft (you will have the opportunity for this to be reviewed by your instructor and your peers). Once you have completed your work, post it to W6 Discussion: Peer Review forum. Note that we will return to this forum in week 6. Pay close attention to the following criteria to ensure you covered everything.

For All Assignment Types
Your assignment should be well-organized and demonstrate an orderly flow of information that clearly addresses the subject chosen. In addition to the above criteria, your final project should include the following elements.

You have three options in how you can present your final project:

As a Paper

Your paper should be creative and demonstrate what you have learned. It should be a minimum of 5-7 pages in length and you will use APA style formatting with a title page and reference section. You should use Times New Roman, 12pt. font, double-space your lines, and set your page up with one inch margins. See the APA templates at Writing Commons for details on how to format your paper.

As a Presentation

Like the paper option, your presentation should be creative and demonstrate what you have learned throughout the project. Your presentation should be 8-10 minutes in length, include visual elements (graphics, pictures, etc.), be presented using a program such as PowerPoint or Prezi, and you should record yourself giving the presentation. Consider using screen capture programs such as JING or Screencast-O-Matic.

As a Speech

As it is in the other two options, your speech should be creative and demonstrate what you have learned throughout the project. Your speech should be 8 to 10 minutes in length and include a typed handout.

The Community Organization: Clearly indicate the focus of the organization and the community needs that the organization wants to address. A brief historical background of the organization should also be included.

  • Discuss any community partnerships that they have. Suggest additional partnerships that you feel they should have.
  • Explore how the cross-cultural challenges and humanitarian considerations are involved.
  • Demonstrate how the organization uses volunteers and the economic benefits associated with this (not just “free labor”).
  • Illustrate any roadblocks that the organization has faced or potential could face and how they did or might find solutions.
  • Describe the organization’s vision for the future.
  • Indicate what areas in which you feel the organization could improve. What challenges (technological, political, economic, laws and regulations, community-based initiatives, educational, etc.) will they need to overcome?
  • Discuss potential ways you might be able to contribute to the organization. How could your own interests, talents, and skills benefit this organization?

Research:

  • You will need to include a minimum of ten (10) sources to support your project claims.

Writing:

  • Title your Project
  • Introduction: Begin with the attention-getter, tie in the background information, and end the introduction with your thesis.
  • Body:
    • Clearly identify the topic of each section. The topic must be a statement, not a question, and should begin with your own ideas and your own words.
    • After identifying your topic, use quotations or paraphrase from your sources to help illustrate the point you are making (be sure to identify the author(s) and source(s)).
    • After you have given support, spend a sentence or two explaining how the example(s) support the section topic.
    • A compilation of your research, your literature review, your methods, (how the data was collected or generated and analyzed), and your results should be included in the body of your project.
  • Conclusion:
    • Restate your thesis.
    • After stating your thesis, restate the topics from each of your body sections and emphasize what is important for your audience/readers to remember.
    • End your conclusion with a call to action that illustrates what your audience/readers should do with the information you presented.

Note: You will have the opportunity to revise and perfect this project, but you should do your best to make each step as complete as possible so you can receive more relevant and constructive feedback from your instructor and your peers.

W5 Lecture 1 "Mentoring" Mentoring There are two main types of mentoring. Hierarchial mentoring occurs between two people who occupy different social positions or social locations. Peer mentoring occurs in a relationship where a more experienced student helps with a less experienced student in improving overall academic performance. This improvement can result when the mentor includes support, advise, and knowledge. A significant role of a mentor – regardless of which type of mentoring is prevalent – is to encourage reflection (guess that’s why we addressed reflection already!) as we now understand the connection between reflection and learning. The mentor can guide the mentee to accomplish this reflection (especially during the service-learning project) by asking the following, which in turn the mentee can reflect upon: 1. Identify issues which may need to be addressed 2. Reflect on similar experiences 3. By asking probing and situational context questions, additional tools and resource ideas may emerge. W5 Lecture 2 "Leadership and Service-Learning" Leadership and Service- Learning Historically, leaders came to be leaders because they were either just made that way; possessing the characteristics and traits traditionally seen in a leader, or they were “in the right place at the right time”. Contemporary times have led to changes in who really becomes a leader. A transformational leadership style emphasizes the role a leader plays in transforming the outlook and actions of other group members so the focus is not on the individuals themselves, but members think about what is good for the entire organization or society as a whole. A servant leadership style seeks to transform others, but places the emphasis on empowering others while still meeting their own needs. In general, leaders have to evaluate not just their own goals, but the entire population that the leader works with – this could be just a small group, or the global population as The President of the United States has to consider. Any leader must also consider the cultural diversities we discussed in Chapter 5. There are two specific achieving leadership styles – Connective Leadership and Direct Leadership. Each of these styles are directly linked to effective leadership and incorporate the concept of a director, connector, or persuader. Director – Leader who utilizes power and authority to lead by telling others what to do. This type of leader will use technology to influence and control other group members. Connector – Leader who specializes in the relational leadership style. This type of leader is more interdependent and values cooperation while enjoying the social aspect of group members. Persuader – Leader who specializes in the instrumental leadership style. This leader tries to use resources to help persuade others to adopt the positions of the leader or take on tasks reflective of the persuader’s goals.

FINAL PROJECT

For any nonprofit organization, it is expected that no place should I be involved in the
business that generates finances and if it’s involved no profit is generated to be used for personal
gain. In this research, it is not the case. The main reason for this project is to come up with a
comprehensive report that seeks to find out how a nonprofit organization generates its finances
and how its success is always guaranteed. The purpose of writing this is to come up with a
comprehensive report that touches on the financial grounds of an organization (Drucker, 2015).
The project seeks to know how a nonprofit organization such as the YMCA is able to sustain its
associates.
Young Men’s Christian Organization. (YMCA)
YMCA takes part in Christian charitable activities like helping the needy by providing
them with athletics facilities, conducting humanitarian works, marketing Christianity and
facilitating classes that teach a variety of skills (Haddad, 2016). YMCA emphasizes on
upholding Christian values as the paramount thing. On the YMCA logo, there is a red triangle.
The triangles corners represent the healthy living of a Christian; a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
The triangle gives the movement oneness and a sense of belonging. The interesting thing about
YMCA is that it’s a Christian organization that performs many activities that aim to help the less
fortunate in the community. It was founded on the principles of muscular Christianity. The
Young Men’s Christian Association, YMCA or simply the YMCA, is a worldwide organization
centered at Geneva, Switzerland. It is an association with more than 2 million recipients from
125 national associations worldwide (Van Horn, 2013). George Williams founded the
association on 6th June 1884 while in London. His aim was to put Christian principles into
action by adopting healthy Christian living. From the time the association was founded by
Williams, till now it has continued growing and ultimately became a movement worldwide. The
