Group 1: people over 60

...Outreach Programs and Their Effectiveness in Lowering Crime Outreach programs are amongst one of the solutions that communities turn to when they begin to see elevated crime rates. The real question, however, is: Are these programs effective? I strongly believe that community outreach programs may be our one valid solution to lowering crime rates in a country that is seeing some of the highest crime rates that we have ever seen. I have found two scholarly articles along with two newspaper articles that I have summarized below that support my theory that outreach programs can be a very effective solution to rising crime rates. My research has provided me with data that backs up the notion that these programs do work, and as long as we continue to use these programs properly, our fight against crime has a promising outlook. Aos, Steve, Marna Miller, and Elizabeth Drake. "Evidence-Based Public Policy Options To Reduce Future Prison Construction, Criminal Justice Costs, And Crime Rates." Federal Sentencing Reporter 19.4 (2007): 275-290. Academic Search Premier. Web. 2 Oct. 2012. This report, which was conducted by the Washington State Institute for Public Policy, highlights some evidence-based options in which crime rates can be reduced while reducing tax rates for state and local taxpayers, and certain outreach programs happen to be one of those options. A rigorous evaluation of 571 individual programs was conducted, and while not all outreach programs are effective,......

The Place for Outreach in the Classroom

...GTP Assignment 2 The place for kiruv(outreach) in the classroom Manchester 15th February 2013 2428 Words Introduction “Take to heart these instructions with which I command you today. Impress them upon your children. Recite them when you stay at home and when you are on the way, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as sign on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead; inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and your gates.” (Deut 6:6-9) The Shemah is not the most authoritative text in Judaism by mere coincidence, it contains the corner stone of our faith which is the transmission of the wisdom and knowledge received at Mount Sinai. In the introduction to his book Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe writes on the necessity of adequate educational methods when transmitting the Torah to ensure its appreciation and its affect on the continuity of the Jewish people. In this essay I aim to analyse the world of Jewish education; its history, challenges and efficiency, I also seek to evaluate the dangers of using the classroom as a laboratory for kiruv experiments and its consequences in the lives of the students exposed to such professionals. Education for Life Brief history The Talmud attributes formal Jewish schooling to the first century sage Yehoshua ben Gamla, prior to this, parents taught their children informally. The methodology used according to Judah ben Tema was: …“at five years the child is ready for studying the......

...I watched the presentation by Sue Austin titled Sue Austin: Deep sea diving… in a wheelchair. This was an amazing about the power of never stop believing. Sue Austin took a preconceived conception of how we see wheelchair bound people and threw it right out the window. She wanted to break out of the mold of a helpless wheelchair bound individual and into thinking no matter what happens in life you can do anything. This video can be found at http://www.ted.com/talks/sue_austin_deep_sea_diving_in_a_wheelchair.html. The speaker does an amazing job inspiring and getting her audience excited about the lecture. She effectively address’s her audience with just the right amount of information for the audience. She gives just enough back stories to her condition to let you know what happened without making it an all about the disease that took her legs. She gives information on what motivated her and inspired her to create a new outlook on wheelchairs. She effectively keeps everyone’s interest no matter what they came for; even if they had only stumbled in they would have been interested in the lecture. The Audience is immediately sucked into the intriguing women on the stage. Wondering what she has to say and how she will motivate them to do anything. They sit in rapt silence wondering at the words and strength that are being displayed on stage. The information is absorbed by everyone old and young. Effective is not a word that could describe the effect this lecture had on the......

...taste of the snack. Gender: It is important that I do not offend someone’s gender in the process of giving my speech. Whether it is female or male it depends on what kinds of food they eat. Sexual orientation: Sexual orientation has nothing to do with my speech, but I need to make sure that I am not discriminating anyone because of their sexual preference. Religion: Although my ingredients may be from one culture who’s belief is of their own. There is no religion requirement to participate in making or eating this snack Racial, ethnic, and cultural background: Race and ethnicity has nothing to do with it, but cultural it may have a tiny impact. It depends on what the expectations are on preparing fish cake. Group membership: This presentation is for all members of society. There’s no membership required to enjoy an easy snack. Other (specify): Although there are people who are judge mental, it does not matter what their opinions are when preparing my snack. Everyone does not have the same taste when it comes to food, the important part is that y family enjoys it. Situational Audience Analysis: What special adaptation is necessary in the speech? Making sure that the setting is comfortable for both the speaker and the audience. Size: Small intimate groups are better so that you are able to answer everyone’s questions and concerns.

The Teen Outreach Project

...The Teen Outreach Project Takesha McCaleb MGMT404 Project Management Jennifer Paul December 13, 2011 Table of Contents Scope Statement1 Reporting Structure of team members………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...3 Work Breakdown Structure4 Risk Management Plan5 Communication Plan…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………11 Scope Statement: Goal Definition There are so many teens in the city of Dayton and surrounding cities that have gotten off to a bad start and would like the chance to turn their life around with a little assistance. We have teens that are having babies with no place to go. There are teens that are on drugs and would like to get away from that lifestyle. There are teens that have runaway to escape an abusive situation and are now living on the streets. The goal of this project is to find a facility that these teens can go to, in order to get off of the streets. Get counseling and a chance to make a better life for themselves. With finding this shelter it is my thought that the City of Dayton can have less crime because these teens are off the street and don’t have to do bad things to get money and hopefully make room in the jails for serious offenders not teens trying to support themselves. Goals that address the mission * The major focus of this teen outreach project is to concentrate on the mission to pave a way for our misguided youth. * Provide an environment of learning and education that benefits our...

...Presentation Evaluation Form If you are on the same learning programme as the person making the presentation then make a copy of this evaluation for yourself. Your name: .......................................................... Date: .................................................................... Location .............................................................. Presenter: • • • • Mark within the indicated range of five general and fairly loose categories. Do ask questions at the end of any presentation (they should be invited by the speaker!). The idea at the end of all the presentations is to offer constructive advice and not meaningless criticism; to discuss ways to improve presentation skills; to evaluate, give feedback and help. There is no point in ‘loading’ your evaluation so that it looks good because the speaker is a ‘mate’ – you do them no favours at all, especially given the fact that there may be an assessed presentation later on in the course. Loose categories: [1] Not very successful [2] Could be better [3] Average only [4] Quite Good [5] Very Good Q1 Clarity of speaking (Could you hear the speaker properly and clearly?) 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 Q2 How would you rate the audio-visuals?

I hope these will help you become a more effective presenter and make a bigger impact on your audience. Thanks for bringing me along for the ride. LET’S BEgIN! one TURN YOUR COMPUTER OFF What’s the first thing you do when you start preparing for a presentation? For many of us, the first thing we do is open up PowerPoint, Keynote, or Prezi and start assembling our imagery. While these programs can be helpful in laying out and organizing our content, they’re not good place to start. The first thing to do is define the message we want to communicate. The problem with using visuals as our starting point is that when start with the how of our presentation we lack the clarity of thought to remember the what that we’re communicating. Our tunnel vision will lead us astray later down the road. By looking at your talk objectively you can determine the best course to take before getting into the details of......

Reflection on Outreach

...Reflection on Outreach Program Food is the basic necessity of everyone. I love children. That is why I really enjoyed the few hours of having feeding program. I realized how an experience could b ]Ie extraordinary by simply being with the less fortunate and making them happy even for a while. I became inspired to persevere more in life so that I can be a big help for the less fortunate. It’s not my first time joining a Feeding Program. In my days in high school, I always facilitating a Feeding Program held in our barangay. Less fortunate children is really close to my heart because I, myself experience becoming like them, eating once eating non nutritious foods and not having my money. There is a chance that I need to transfer school so I can continue my studies .We are lucky because we can eat more than three times a day, we can study in a good university, we have more money, we can eat whatever we want, we are wearing a good uniform and we can have what we want. I am lucky because all of these, I can have and I experience and I can have, but the children in the feeding program cannot have it because there are not financially capable. Don’t waste your foods or either your money to anything but help others. I am Very lucky because I can do whatever I want to do. I can eat whatever I want to eat. Even you, you’re lucky. So we must take care these blessing and share to others. Sharing to others is the most special things I can do or we can do and feeling of we or I......

Although a presentation is a verbal form of communication, it is often supported by other media, such as computer software, slides, printed handouts, and so on and to be successful, appropriate body language and good interpersonal communication skills are required. A presentation is normally intended to introduce something new to the audience, to persuade them of a viewpoint, or to inform them of something. Sales representatives use presentations when introducing a product to a potential customer. Presentations are also used in team briefing and other business contexts.

Effective presentations are about clear communication. To present well, we need to understand when and why to use visual aids, what audiences...

Summer Outreach Program

...SUMMER OUTREACH PROGRAM A Community Service for Children SPEAK ENGLISH (AGES 3-5) Location: Brgy. Holy Spirit Quezon City Personnel: Volunteers( Professionals, Students) I. Introduction This program will definitely help children ages 3-5 in a community to be able to speak in English.
