Identify one community resource and prepare an on-site interview with someone within the organization and spend 4 hours at the facility observing and gathering information. Thoroughly answer the questions on the attached “Community Culture Worksheet” to guide your interview and information gathering. Write a reflective paper from the information you have gained. See the attached sample worksheet and paper. Your assignment is to be submitted by week 7.
