Practicum Update: Week 12
This week Jenn and I are focusing on polishing the website. We have gone over each section and looked for ways to bring cohesion. Our main goal remains to accessibility for all guests.
We have also gone over the video interviews that are featured on the site and have made a list of missing interviews. We hope to get these done over the coming week.
In preparation for the upcoming DH Showcase we have began reflecting on our practicum experience over the past 4 months. Learning to navigate and work with Squarespace has been a learning curve for both of us, but we both feel that the experience was beneficial!
Apart from the final product aspect of the practicum we both agree that the face-to-face opportunities have been extremely valuable and impactful! At the start of our practicum we could not have imagined how meaningful the work we would do would be. We had the opportunity to speak to members of the community and tour sites of harm reduction and outreach. Our eyes were opened to the world of non-profit organization and the factors that contribute to caring for those in need.
It is my hope that the encounters with non-profit social justice organizations in our community will continue long after our practicum concludes! My eyes have been opened and this is truly just the start of a long journey of advocacy and care!
