PAR Project: U-Mass Boston

April 7, 2015

Members of the Riverside Community Neighborhood Watch in Cambridge and eight College of Public and Community Service students, working under the supervision of an associate professor of Community Planning, worked collaboratively on a PAR project from September 1993 until June 1994.

A community needs and resouces assessment carried out in the fall of 1994 formed the basis for developing a strategic plan to meet communtiy goals. The focus was issues of community building and safety, especially concentrating on the needs for youth. In addition to producing realistic implementation plans for community action, the project emphasized a planning process designed to engage a broad spectrum of the Riverside community, thereby increasing visibility, membership and effectiveness of the Riverside Community Neighborhood Watch.
