Project Assignment Models
- Research-Based--groups of students work to solve problems identified by the community
- One-on-One Interaction--students are paired with individuals from agencies (or clients of agencies) in mentoring, shadowing and/or conversational relationships
- Direct Service--students are placed in agencies where they are assigned specific, daily tasks by on-site supervisors
- Project-Based--groups of students work on a community project either for an agency or with the direction of the faculty leader (examples: conference, art show, radio show, video)
- Resource Development--students work individually or in groups designing resources for agencies (examples: curricula, manuals, website, brochure)
- Teaching Others--students work individually or in groups tutoring others or providing lessons to groups
