The United Nations defines Community development as "a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems."[1] It is a broad term given to the practices of civic leaders, activists, involved citizens and professionals to improve various aspects of communities, typically aiming to build stronger and more resilient local communities.
Community development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change within their communities. These skills are often created through the formation of large social groups working for a common agenda. Community developers must understand both how to work with individuals and how to affect communities' positions within the context of larger social institutions.
Community development as a term has taken off widely in anglophone countries i.e. the USA, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand and other countries in the Commonwealth. It is also used in some countries in eastern Europe with active community development associations in…...

Cj213 Final Project the Future of Community Policing

...The Future of Community Policing Robert Jones Kaplan University Community Policing CJ213 Professor John Carpenter September 01, 2013 The Future of Community Policing Community policing is a philosophy that is utilized by law enforcement agencies around the world. Moreover, law enforcement agencies worldwide have garnished much success in their crime reduction efforts through their community policing programs. In the United States, many law enforcement agencies have yet to employ community policing programs. The failure to embrace change by many law enforcement agencies may contribute to a grim future for community policing in the United States. Japan began a highly successful community policing program called Koban. Koban in translation means “police box". The basic premise behind the Koban program is to have a small cadre of police officers (1-10) on duty, 24/7 in every neighborhood. There are approximately 6,500 Koban boxes throughout the country. The police officers that are assigned to the Kobans typically work eight hour shifts. The basic duties of the police officer assigned to a Koban post include standing watch at their respective post, conducting foot and vehicle patrols, conducting residential and business visits to provide and solicit information on resident security and safety needs and to respond for calls for service. One of the distinct aspects of the Koban program is that the police officers are trained to engage in casual conversations......

Within a community there are levels of prevention that are highly recommended when attempting to provide care to the community. Statistics have revealed that the proper implementation of levels of prevention can reduce aggressive disease progression in a target community. Obviously, to allow real change to take place amongst the aggregate it is imperative to properly identify the levels of prevention and apply the levels to the appropriate aggregate needs. In addition, to selecting the appropriate levels of prevention there is also a theoretical model that must be chosen accordingly to the needs of the aggregate.

Community Project

...TARGET POPULATION The community I selected was my entire family and friends plus extended family. I chose to invite all the family members that have teenagers less than 18yrs (adolescents) to a house warming party at my house. African heritage treasures bigger families, and generally their families support the notion, that the more the merrier at least where I come from, giving me an audience of 15 children under 18yrs old and their parents. I choose to do my presentation at the family setting because the teens in the family and their parents have a greater concern for how to control infection at this time of the year as it is a major factor in preventing the spread of germs and viruses that cause diseases. And again, I plan to do it on a group of family and close friends given that charity begins at home. This will be more appropriate because of the stomach flu that was going around, and most of my niece and nephews and friends’ teens got it, hence my choice of setting to teach. The other factor that I have considered is that it is the stomach flu season and therefore it is the appropriate time to do my teaching on this topic to benefit our teenagers by enlighten them and their parents on how to prevent the spread or getting of the stomach flu. I I intend to obtain my material online resources such as the CDC website, Univ. of Michigan site and the Mayo clinic site.

The city's motto "Wheatheart of Oklahoma" and the Native American translation of the towns name "Tonkawa" meaning "they all stay together" was the inspiration behind the design. The park contains pavers and art panels depicting local culture and history. In less than one years’ time fund in excess of $150,000.00 were raised through donations, grants, and in-kind services. The park is utilized for a variety of community activities including educational presentations to high school and college students, fundraising events, an annual Harvest Walk, Valentine's Day Walk and weddings ("Heart in the Park Labyrinth", n.d). Community projects such as this can be successful when elected officials come together with residents. Collaboration amongst various team members has proven to be an effective tool when utilized to accomplish common goals that may not have been achievable on their own (Swindell & Hilvert, 2014). When different partners come together it is important to ensure that all team players are on the same page. There are seven characteristics that can influence the success in achieving goals in a community project; assessing funds available, contract......

Project 2 Community Based Corrections

...Community Corrections Research Project Ethan Ray CCJS 201 Introduction to Corrections 20 April 2015 What is community based corrections? “Community based corrections are sanctions imposed on convicted adults or adjudicated juveniles that occur in a residential or community setting outside of jail or prison. The sanctions are enforced by agencies or courts with legal authority over the adult or juvenile offenders. Community corrections programs are generally operated by probation agencies (correctional supervision within the community instead of incarceration) and parole agencies (conditional, supervised release from prison).” (National Institute of Justice, 2015) These community based corrections are most of the time for lower level offenders. These offenders have committed crimes, but are not harsh enough crimes to be put into a prison where they are under constant security. These individuals in these programs may have just got out of prison, or have charges against them that only required the supervision or a probation officer. They may also be able to get help with drug and alcohol problems, grief and bereavement issues, and depression or self- esteem issues. These programs are offered and the Federal, State, and local levels. We will be discussing a program that is at the State/Local level. I currently reside in the state of Florida so I have decided to do the community corrections of Florida as a whole. This way we can take a look at every aspect that the......

Though stress can appear differently regarding students’ age, gender, and majors, they are actually experiencing similar stresses such as not getting enough sleep, having heavy workload, and different eating habits. Therefore, it is imperative to come up with strategies for college students to cope with their stress and go back to their normal college life which they suppose to have. This project is mainly focused on a freshmen student as freshmen are a group that particularly susceptible to stress (D’Zurilla & Sheedy, 1991) because of transitional nature of college life (Towbes & Cohen, 1996).
