blog no. 16: Helping Hands

My goal was to find an area where the Academy for Educational Development could use improvements, but this task was not easy because the organization handles its expansive agenda very well. Although, being such a large organization I feel they could do a better job of promoting awareness at the grass roots level. I’m disappointed that I have never heard of the organization prior to taking this class. I think that there should be better attempts to bolster grass roots movements through university involvement. I could be stretching on this one but I think the organization is over most of our heads; perhaps because it is too difficult for people that aren’t specialists to get involved. Looking at the website it is not easily or apparent the ways for an individual to volunteer. Like I said I think this organization is doing a great job addressing prominent global issues, but perhaps there can be more opportunities for the “little guy” to help within the organization.
