For my English Project, my teacher wants me and a group of other people to make a project to solve a problem in my community. The problem that I wanted to conquer was a lack of communication between different groups of people. My group, Sara, Timothy, and Stephanie, and I suggested that maybe we should do the project for a communication line between different foster homes. Our original plan is to host a pen pal program between two different hosues. Maybe in the end we hope to host an event where the pen pals can meet each other. My goal of this project is to help different kids make a new friend.
As of now, my group has been discussing the means by which we will successfully host the program. My partner and I recently had a Google chat and found the homes that we want to contact and have drawn up a final proposal to give to them.
The entire group met in the library on November 22, 2013.
There was another online meeting to see where we were with each of our tasks on November 27, 2013.
Timothy and Stephanie discussed which clubs to look to for assistance in funding. They got turned down by the clubs for funding idea and sought out more of an art/craft activity to do with the foster kids
The gorup and I contacted the foster homes/ group homes in the area to see if they would like to participate. We were rejected from all of them and are rethinking our idea.
My group and I have rethought about our idea and are instead doing a “Draw My Life” theme. We will be doing videos on the life of different children in a foster home or in a shelter. Our goal is to give children and teens around the world a new appreciation of what they are privileged to in their life. So far, we have contacted the Santa Barbara Home to try and find out if it is possiblity.
These are the emails:
