Collaborative Health and Human Services: Social Work Concentration


Yoga for All Movement is a non-profit organization that makes yoga and mindfulness available to marginalized communities. The agency collaborates with organizations to provide needed services to the families of the Live Oak and Emerald Bay communities. The macro level problem is that children and youth in Santa Cruz County are experiencing the negative effects of being isolated at home during the COVID pandemic. The micro level problem is that the children and youth of the Live Oak and Emerald Bay communities are facing barriers to social development opportunities and lack knowledge on available resources to help them. The capstone project was a community event at the Winkle Park in Live Oak, with a purpose of providing safe outdoor social activities that involve self care and engagement. Survey results showed that children and youth were actively engaged, learned basic tools for self care, and parents gained information on available services.
