CNS6775 Community Agency Interview
Students are to go to one community agency/organization and interview someone that heads up advocacy projects. Some questions to ask would be: What is the social issue the organization is advocating for? Why is it so important? Do they have an advocacy plan? If so, what does it entail? What activities do they do to bring awareness to the issue (walks, commercials, etc.)? Do they use a specific advocacy model? If so, what is it and why do they use that particular one? What other organizations/agencies do they partner with and why? Any other questions that you may have feel free to ask! You will write a one-two page paper about your interview. Include where you went (actual address), who you spoke to, title of position, how the person got to be in the position he/she is in, a summary of the interview, and how you view the importance of advocacy and consultation in the counseling profession. This paper is to be in APA format.
