In this seminar, students will be placed with an organization that is engaged with (or involved in outreach efforts with) the Latinx community of Mecklenberg County and the surrounding region. Field placements will vary, but ideally, the student will be involved in carrying out a project for the host organization that will involve research. Examples might include, developing an outreach plan for an organization that aspires to engage with a Latinx community, or developing a set of resources that an organization for implementing their programs with Spanish-speaking populations. The learning will come not only from the practical experience of collaboration, but also from written reflections on that experience and readings on engaged, participant, and activist research.
