For this option, select one person/stakeholder in your community who might have interest or expertise in your community action plan. Remember, a stakeholder is a person with an interest or concern in something. This stakeholder should have a connection to your portfolio topic in your chosen community as this may help you determine who you can interview. Plan a brief interview with this person to run your ideas for an action plan to implement in your community by him or her as you continue drafting your plan. Do not use this interview to verify that this person thinks the issue exists in your community. The existence of the issue should already be evident from your previous research. Your interviewee could come from the following (don’t be limited by this list): Government officials (state, regional, local, or federal) Local health/public health department agent(s) Non-profits or non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Think broadly. For example, consider national and local organizations (e.g., men and women’s organizations, schools, government-funded services, and volunteer organizations). Businesses often help fund or implement community projects. Colleges or universities may have grants, special departments, or clubs/organizations. Churches or faith-based organizations Instructions Before your interview, list 10 questions about the plan you are developing to tackle an issue in your community. These should be questions that you want to ask the person you have selected to interview. Take notes during the interview, in preparation for writing a summary of your conversation. After the interview, write a 2- to 3-page summary of the interview, not including the title and reference pages, which are required. List each question you asked, as well as a short, one-paragraph summary of the response you got to each question. The paper must be formatted correctly using APA style. Remember, all research material used in your paper must be paraphrased and include an in-text citation.
