Proposal - Senior Capstone Career Project Approval Form
Student Name (please print) ___Claire Gay_________________________________
Address ____226 Crescent Moon Way_________________________
Parent/Guardian Phone ____404-402-6250__________________________
Date Submitted ________ Approved: __________________
Directions: Describe your Product and respond to the following questions in as much detail as possible. All questions must be completed thoroughly to receive approval for your Product and Project.
1) Describe what you are proposing to do for your Product step-by-step and in detail.
I believe that I would like to put on an event at an assisted living facility where I will be volunteering. As I spend time at the facility, I hope to get to know the residents as well as what they enjoy. This will help me to decide what I want to do for them. I will need supplies for the event depending upon what it is. Depending upon the event, I might need decorations as well. I might try to do a family movie night where the residents can watch a movie with their family. I would need popcorn for the guests and a large area in the facility to show the movie. I must see what the facility believes will be possible.
2) What is your previous experience in this area of study?
This past summer I participated in an online summer course called “So You Think You Want to Be a Doctor.” Through this course, we were required to shadow a medical professional. I fully enjoyed the experience as a whole. I am also president of Alpha-Gamma, a service club. Through this club we have put on several fundraisers and events for the club and the members.
3) How is this Product a “learning stretch” and challenge for you?
I have never designed an event from start to finish without having someone going through channels for me. I have never gone through any of the channels myself. Through Alpha-Gamma, I have helped to organize events and work them, but I have never planned an event form start to finish. I believe this will be a challenge for me because it will be in an entirely different environment.
4) How is this Product related to a career you are interested in possibly pursuing in the future?
I am considering becoming a doctor. I am not sure what type of doctor I would like to become though. I believe that through this process I can see if becoming a general practitioner in a hospital is for me.
5) How long do you expect it to take you to complete your Product ?
I would expect it to take me a few weeks. I want to take some time to make sure the event I have planned is something that the residents would enjoy. I also want to ensure that it is a feasible activity for the residents. After I am sure about these things, I believe it should only take a week or two to prepare everything for the event if I make it a number one priority.
6) When and where will you work on your Product ?
I imagine I will work on the ideas and planning just about anywhere at just about any time. I believe some of the best ideas can spark from something unexpected. I am hoping that I can prepare the event at Provident Village where I am hoping to be volunteering at.
7) What are your estimated costs for completing the Product , and how will you fund these costs?
Depending upon the event, I believe I could probably do most anything for about $500. I am not 100% sure how many residents are at the facility. That will factored into the cost as well, but I could potentially go to local businesses in order to ask for donations for the event. If I did a movie for the residents, I could ask for popcorn donations from the movie theater. They have done similar things for other events in the past and I am hopeful that they would do this again.
8) What ideas do you have for finding a Project Facilitator?
I hope to be able to work with the event coordinator at the facility, but if this is not plausible for them, I hope to ask a woman at my church. She helped to coordinate events at another assisted living facility, and I believe she would know what she is doing.
9) What expertise does this person need to have in order to be beneficial to you and your project?
I believe it would be beneficial for them to have expertise in coordinating events. I think it is also important that they know how to coordinate events for the elderly.
10) What steps will you need to take before you begin work on your Product?
I will need to first get in touch with the facility and be sure that I can volunteer there. If they are ok with me volunteering, then I will need to make sure they are ok with putting on an event for their residents.
11) What concepts, skills, knowledge, career goals do you hope to attain upon completion of your Product ?
I hope to have improved my communications skills. I am hoping that I will also gain more patient and a better understanding of what good bedside manner is.
12) How will you demonstrate your Product for Presentation at Senior Boards ?
I hope to take tons of pictures of the event. Hopefully I could take videos to show them as well. Ideally, I want to make cute little gifts or crafts, which pertain to the event, for all of the residents. I would have some of these prepared to present as well.
I hereby agree to complete the above stated Product in partial fulfillment of my Senior Capstone Career Project requirement according to the summer timeline. I understand that I am responsible for completing at least TEN HOURS of product work during the summer and for turning in the following forms when school resumes in August:
I understand that I must also obtain my parents’ or guardians ’ permission on the proper form before this agreement is valid.
