Community Development with Immigrant Women. A Resource Kit for Community Education and Organizing.
Moreno, Veronica; Persad, Judy Vashti
The primary objective of the kit is to present a model to assist Canadian community workers in developing a workshop or a course on community development working with or intending to work with immigrant women. The booklet provides a guide through the stages of needs assessment, outreach, selection of participants, program design, implementation, and evaluation. In using this model, a facilitator can follow the stages from designing a course to course delivery and can reconstruct the process from planning through implementation. "Anti-racism" is an integral component of any course or workshop that examines the life experiences and situation of immigrant women in Canada. One full unit focuses on racism, sexism, and discrimination. There are 11 units in the booklet. A course bibliography and an outline for gathering biographical and cultural information are given as appendices. (EH)
