Resource Opportunity | GSU School of Social Work
Georgia State University’s School of Social Work requests proposals from Atlanta area nonprofits and agencies to have second-year MSW students work with them on a community project. These projects would involve groups of four students that partner with an organization to plan, implement and evaluate a community project.
September 1, 2013: All proposals due
Fall 2013: Projects selected and conceptualized
January-April 2014: Projects implemented
Community projects can take a variety of forms. Recent projects have included launching new initiatives/interventions, program evaluations, fundraisers, policy advocacy/lobbying on legislative initiatives, and creating short documentary-style DVDs. Some of the organizations/agencies that sponsored projects last year included the Atlanta Community Food Bank, the Homeless Liaison for Fulton County Schools, the Samaritan Counseling Center, and the National Association of Black Social Workers. Several projects over the last few years have won awards from the GSU Office of Civic Engagement through campus-wide competitions.
