What’s Up with Services?!
A monthly update on re-envisioning SEEC services post pandemic
By Sherry Beamer, Director of Services
In June and July, we reported on SEEC’s Community Engagement (CE) program strategies and scheduling. This month our CE program began it’s return to In-Person Supports. By October, everyone in Community Engagement will have at least two hours of service in their neighborhood and group learning the other half of the day.
The CE staff are learning new techniques to build neighborhood connections. Training and technical assistance is provided monthly from Neighbours International in New Jersey, an organization like SEEC. A Neighbours consulting team is sharing their method for making connections based on the Asset Based Community Development work of DeAmon Harges, who is one of the trainers. You can learn more about Neighbours and DeAmon at: https://www.neighbours-international.com/ https://resources.depaul.edu/abcd-institute/faculty/Pages/deamon-harges.aspx
Abby Taylor and Kyra Harvey, SEEC Knowledge Management staff, have developed and presented much of our virtual curricula, and are piloting an on-line learning portal of virtual classes that those in Community Engagement can incorporate into their daily schedules. The pilot options will continue with the Relationships and Career Development classes Kyra taught live before the pandemic. The system we are piloting is called the WISE Learning Management System, which was built up during the pandemic by our employment colleagues in the state of Washington.
