Ideal for individuals or small groups of students. Research work can be primarily online. Some organizations require a Photo release and presentation permission needed before process can begin. This project allows the student to work from home with limited transportation and printing needed. This project aims to help students learn more about the social issues the face our community and services various non-profit organizations provide to the community.
