Ullucci article

The Ullucci
article shows us how poverty affects youth. Poverty affects Schools, they are separated
by different classes. Also  they are divided
by race. Its happens to be that schools are being separated to geographical area
the minority schools end up going to the same school. Where there is lack of resources
for these students.  Many schools today
are being segregated. Many will argue this is not true. But if you think about
it, it’s true. Where parents have more money there are better education. But in
urban the education is not so great.  In
the Ullucci article also shows that children that come from   an
impoverished background move from place to place or are homeless (Ullucci,
2014). Many children living in poverty are seen as the “other” (Ullucci, 2014).
People may say that those who are living in poverty are lazy or don’t want
to live a different life than what they are in right now.  This is not the
case. There are many factors that come with living in poverty.


This reminds
me of  Digital Natives (Prensky) school
are low in resource because there are less resources for these students that
live in urban areas where there are not getting all the resources and the
education needed. Where there are not expose to digital. In the long run its
going to affects them. Where we are living in a digital world

I am
planning to stay in the city of Providence (urban)  and work with the community. I would like to
work with the school department to try to make education better. I like the
fact that in Providence there are a lot diversity . Working in the urban area
will help me be able to learn what can make the city of Providence better. I
would like to work close with the youth to help them be successful.

Ready for my second event

Really Excited about my second event!

YDEV Event 1

YDEV Advising Day

Going to advising was great, I got to meet some of the people from the program.  We got to talk about our experience and some people were stress out as I was. I found out that most of the people there were graduating with me.  During the event we sat down on computers and fill our Plan of study. I felt the hardest part was filling up everything in our plan of studies because it took a long time. But once it was filled out it was easier to find out what classes we needed. We also talked about when classes were given to make sure we take the correct classes.

What did I learn from going to advising? Well first I learned that I have taken a lot of classes. Second I learned that I have to take a class I did not know about. Third I learned about how the NON- Profit studies works and how many other classes I needed.

Plus:  My plus from this event was that we got to go over our schedule to make sure if we were taking the correct classes. I got to see if am going to graduate on time.  Guess What! I will be Graduating in May! (If everything goes as plan) another plus from this event was that we got to pick our classes and put them on cart for next semester.

Our group advising reminds me of Prensky reading ( Digital Natives,2001)   about technology. We met in Gaige hall computer lab. We were in the computers updating our plan of study. Technology is getting advance now where everything is done online. If it wasn’t for the computers, we would take longer to do advising. Also on the computer we know our information will not get lost.
Delta: I wish we had more time to have one on ones.

Overall I think it was a great experience and advising!

Primary Support

A Primary support is often for young people, they participate on a voluntary basis. Some of the activities are for parents to be involves as well.  It often a variety of cultural, athletic, social and recreational.  Some of the primary support are made up by part time and volunteers. You will find these primary support near schools or communities.

A few examples for these primary support will be the YMCA, YWCA, Boy Scouts and the 4- H club. These are some of the oldest support. But the oldest is the YMCA that was founded in England in 1844.

These primary support organization are flexible for empowering youth.  But they are limited of training and experiencing of many staff.’’ Primary support organizations share a commitment to meeting the normal developmental needs of young people rather than focusing on their problems.” It is more important to focus on the children rather than the problem of the organization. A lot of the primary support programs are organized around the goals not academic of young people, but it’s also physical, social and emotional. Primary supports are there to make the person stronger to strive for the better such as academic and leadership skills.

I believe that these primary support are good for young people. I feel it helps them to build themselves up. Many young people don’t have a parent or someone at home that could help them with homework, and this a great way to meet people, get help and build themselves up for the better.
