The course prepares students to develop effective programs designed for various client populations. Using program design principles and practices, students match learning activities to desired program outcomes. The course uses an inclusive, values-based approach to the work that we do. Fundamental to the programming approach that we use will be the needs of those we are attempting to serve. Hence, the “voice” and involvement of program participants in the various elements of program planning, design and evaluation will be highlighted throughout our discussions, with the ultimate goal being the empowerment and satisfaction of participants.
