Submit a 2- to 3-page final report of your Social Change Project. The final report should include the following:
Provide a brief synopsis of the social problem and policy you identified.
Describe the steps of your project:
How did your experiences as a social work professional and your own goals for advocacy inform your selection of a social problem?
How did your knowledge of, or prior experiences with, the social problem inform your policy analyses?
What did you learn through each step, including your selection of a social problem, identification of a policy, proposal for advocacy, and recommendation for a policy alternative?
Reflecting on your experience, identify 2–3 opportunities for growth. What would you do differently based on your recent learnings?
For example, you might select a different policy alternative that would be better received by elected officials (or other decision makers in a position of power). Or you might use different strategies when speaking in front of a group to advocate for change.
Explain how policy relates to direct practice.
Describe how you will apply advocacy skills as a social worker.
Be sure to incorporate at least five scholarly articles you found using standard APA format.
