Discussion

Can you help me understand this Political Science question?

The initial post (addressing the questions) should be made by Wednesday (see due date) at 11:59pm and the second post (response to another student) should be made by the Saturday following the due date listed on the syllabus at 11:59pm.

Carla is a volunteer for a drug abuse program. The program is a voluntary 12-week comprehensive program for youth and young adults that involves counseling, doctors appointments, home visits, and mentoring. Carla volunteers 5 hours per week and is responsible for mentoring a different client each week. Suppose you are creating a volunteer description for Carla, as your organization does not have one. Respond to the following questions in no more than 1-2 paragraphs.

  1. How can you create ownership in this position?
  2. How can you give the volunteer the authority to think?
  3. How can you provide responsibility for results?
  4. How can you keep score?

-By Saturday at 11:59pm post a response to one other student. Do you agree or disagree with their assessment of managing Carla? Why or why not? To earn full credit, make sure that you add to the discussion (rather than simply agree or disagree with another student). To add to the discussion, you can reference reading material, such as your text book, or personal examples from your experience.
