 Where in the World is My Community? It is Online and around the World
according to Missionary Kids
Having physical access to a community and having a sense of community is
not always an easy option for Third Culture Kids (TCKs) who live in a
culture other than their parents' native cultures such as missionary
families and government and non-governmental agency workers located in
various countries around the world. One TCK stakeholder (a co-author)
decided to practice creating community and research by conducting a
participatory action research project with a goal of engaging a subgroup
of TCKs called missionary kids (MKs) to meet online and to create a
sense of community. Findings have implications for expanding theories of
sense of community and for practices to create and sustain online

 Community Psychology Values-Driven Pedagogy: The Foundation for
Empowering Educational Settings

pedagogy as the foundation for the enactment of an empowering
educational setting for community psychology graduate students. Using

Los Angeles as a model, curricular and extracurricular program elements
that foster student well-being are identified. A model of an empowering
educational setting is presented. Explored are intrapersonal,
interactional, behavioral, and longitudinal empowerment as they relate
to student and faculty roles. Student empowerment outcomes and
indicators of student learning are highlighted with case examples.

 Growing Green Partnerships
By breaking up the body of the letter into logical topics, your readers
can focus in on the topic that they deem most relevant.
Select your wording carefully. Most people scan their emails very
quickly. Keep your paragraphs to seven lines or less. If you have more
information, include a link to your website where your readers can get
further details.

Thank your customer, tell them how valuable they are to you, but don't
go overboard. Insincerity is easy to spot.
