The Symposium on Community-Engaged Scholarship

Lunch Session: I think that performance is a great way to advocate and spark advocating. it gave emotional examples what may have not been their own, but nonetheless show how immigration is experienced by so many different people. Serving has definitely led me to advocacy. I think the direct service I have done has especially pushed me to more of an advocacy side of service. When you have the chance to see the struggles people face first hand I think it really allows you to work with the community and assist them in getting the word out in a way they may not be able to.
Showcase: My favorite showcase session was "Babies Behind Bars".The gave so much insightful information about incarceration that I would never have thought of. One of the biggest things I learned from the presentation was that after a person is rebased they may face issues with their citizenship and rights and privileges that we are granted through US citizenship can be effected and taken away, especially in DC because we aren't a state and people are often sent to jails in other US states.
Panel: I went to "Partnership in Youth Development/Education". This course connected a lot of the topics I have learned in my different community engaged courses this year. Shannon talked about how she looked at the Morton model of service and while trying to use it in her work she found that the most successful use of it is charity, direct service, and social change all inconjuction with each other. Kristen Mcinerney's presentation had many things I could take and connect to my Child and Adolescent Development class. She talked about the difficulty that students coming to the US at a high school age in terms of language barriers and how education can be hard because of this reason. A lot of the things she talked about I was able to look back and connect it to developmental theory.
