HOS 132 LEADERSHIP PROJECT PROFILE
By focusing on nonprofit organizations in the hospitality and tourism industry, this project introduces the concept of giving back, or volunteerism, for hospitality and culinary students. For this project, you will identify a local, regional or national nonprofit organization that exemplifies the type of group that you might someday consider working with as a leader or volunteer. In final presentations incorporating the skills developed in this class, you will share information about the many opportunities in the community for giving back and making an impact in your area of interest.
The project consists of three sections:
1. Written paper.
2. Power point presentation.
3. Oral presentation incorporating the written paper and power point.
Prepare a power point presentation for use in your oral presentation to share the organization’s profile with the class.
1. Dress professionally (interview or formal workplace attire).
2. Presentation should be a minimum of ten minutes.
3. Submit written paper and power point presentations in D2L dropboxes.
4. Flash drives and web-based access such as Prezi should be approved in advance.
5. Completed project is required in order to receive a successful grade for the course.
The following list includes suggested nonprofit organizations and foundations; please feel free to choose others that have personal meaning for you.
Search the library's online catalog to find books, dvds, and other resources in the library related to your presentation topic. Books which can be checked out of the library are located on the second floor (at Main).
Search using your person's name or a related topic. For example, if you've picked the organization The Sustainability Institute, you could search using the organization's name or, perhaps, the term "sustainability." You might also try "volunteers" or "volunteering."
Any organization's name may be entered in a book search; however if you are looking particularly for lowcountry organizational info, you might want to try the Charleston County Public Library or one of our newspaper databases.
The following electronic databases are available through the TTC Library. Additional databases are found on the Library Database webpage. When accessing library resources from an off-campus location, you will be prompted to enter your 7 digit student id number (including the zero). In the Portal, the number can be located by choosing "My Information" and selecting "My Profile". The number is located underneath your name.
To brush up on your skills in using PowerPoint for Presentations, you can take a look at this section from the Library's Learning Express database.
