SOC 217 - Social Change Through Community Engagement

This course utilizes experiential learning and action based research to understand some of the conditions that put certain youth in our local community at risk, and to come up with solutions to alleviate these conditions. During the semester we will be working with high school students who participate in a gang prevention program located in the city of Anaheim called Higher Ground Youth and Family Services. We will collaborate with our community youth to research a social problem that directly impacts our community, and to come up with policy solutions. May be repeated for credit. (Offered spring semester.) 3 credits
