The Effect of a Community Project on Sense of Community among Social Work Students: An Exploratory Evaluative Study
Boehm, Amnon; Moin, Victor
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v34 n1 p79-95 2014
This article evaluates the effect of a community project that was adopted by the students of a school of social work in Israel. A quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design was used. The pretest was administered during the planning stage of the project and the posttest a year later, during the implementation period. The findings show a significant positive effect of the project on sense of community among the students. This effect was moderated by students' ethnic affiliation (Arab or Jewish) and professional commitment. The implications for using community projects to develop a sense of community in schools of social work are discussed.
