Research Topic and Applied Project Ideas

Possible Research Topics:

  1. I’m working on looking into DCYF (New Hampshire), ACS (New York City), or DCF (Massachusetts) because I want to see how these organizations operate in-order to better my understanding of my field.
    1. This is interesting to me because I can not only, understand how these organization operate but I can also example to people when they ask for advice on maybe something they have seen or heard that arises concern.
  2. I’m working on looking into rates in success in placements programs along with the rate of returns because it will be helpful to know what works and what doesn’t.
    1. This is interesting to me because I work for Becket Family Services and I would like to look into what the rate our success have been.

Possible Ideas for Applied Project:

  1. Sponsoring a drive for necessary products such as, clothing, hygiene products, blankets etc.
    1. This is interesting and important to me because working with young men, I know how hard it is for them to ask or even tell us that they may be in need of things.
    2. This can be done be getting a hold of different members in the community and ask for donations, maybe even get people from different communities involved.
  2. Work Shop for Youth
    1. Get youth engaged with different programs such as, reading club, wood shop, etc.
    2. Use the work shop as a job fair by giving youth ideas of what they want to do in the future.

  1. Hi Nicole,
    It seems like you really want to know what programs are working and how they work. I believe that after this research project, you will be more knowledgeable and have a better idea on how to help the youth. I also like your project ideas. It seems like helping the youth is what your passion is and with your projects, that will happen. I am excited to see where your research and project goes! Good luck!

  2. Hi Nicole!
    I think researching the success rates of programs is an interesting subject as well as not studied enough. I think this could be very interesting as well as beneficial for further development. I also think your applied project ideas sound very interesting! None of them sound like a bad option and are both interesting in their own ways. I think doing a drive to raise goods for these children would be an awesome way to get the community involved in your applied project.
