Presentation Transcript

What is locality development?

  • Community change is pursued through broad participation by people at the local community level. (Rothman, 2001).
  • Members of the community work together to determine goals.
  • Social integration and the development of relationships among different racial and socioeconomic groups (Rothman, 2001).
  • Locality Development in Baker
  • - This would be a useful model to create social change in the Baker community.
  • The implementation of this model would facilitate the integration of minority groups and whites in the neighborhood.
  • It would also facilitate collaboration of these two groups in working towards a common goal (ex: cleaning up and stopping graffiti and recovering Daley Park).
