Clayton State University students in Dr. Susan Rashid Horn’s Writing for Non-profits course worked hard to assist A Friend’s House in McDonough, Ga., and Hands of Hope in Stockbridge, Ga.
Two groups of students worked with A Friend’s House Director Nan Jenkins by creating the organization’s first annual report and researching nearly a dozen grant opportunities as well as providing the verbiage for potential grant proposals. Grant proposals were based on the organizations work with at-risk youth, mentoring services, social services, and education.
“Ms. Jenkins was very appreciative of the work our students did. She expressed to the students a very heartfelt thank you expressing their support and work as invaluable during these difficult economic times,” noted Rashid Horn, assistant professor of English.
Students who worked with A Friend’s House are:
James Baxley (Morrow)
Millicent Benson (Mansfield, Oh.)
Leah Brown (Atlanta)
Gail Buckner (Jonesboro)
Alene Hall (Fayetteville)
Tish Naghise (Decatur)
Tim Vlcek (Cleveland)
Students also assisted the Hands of Hope organization and Director Linda Banks. One group of students created a flyer, a brochure and a best practices manual while the other group created an on-line training program for the Hands of Hope volunteers.
“Ms. Banks intends to bring the student’s work to other members of the Board of Directors this week,” says Rashid Horn.
