    Abstract: Exploring Community-based Organizations and Collaboration in Social Welfare for Adolescents

    Mentor: Dr. Lisa Avery, School of Social Work

    The tern "Community Organizing" covers a wide spectrum of activities and approaches. In terms of strengths, community-organizing methods can facilitate grassroots activities to recruit potential members, bring groups together, and accomplish substantial community action (Castelloe, Watson & White, 2004). The Spokane, WA community has a long history of community development and collaboration amongst social service agencies. This research project intends to explore the evolution of community-based organizations within the social welfare context and to examine current trends in community organizing on behalf of adolescents in Spokane. The study will also address the following research questions: (1) Can there be collaboration among the local agencies in Spokane whose programs provide services to adolescents? And (2) what needs are there in Spokane in regards to adolescents?
