This HDFS class is designed to give undergraduate students advanced training in working with elementary school children who are struggling with their peer relationships and
socioemotional skills. Students spend the first three weeks engaging in reading about the
importance of positive peer relationships and the skills needed to effectively interact with
others. We also learned about the history of social skills training and the techniques and
strategies used to work with children. The remainder of the semester is spent in small groups working with five children, three of whom have been identified as needing help interacting with other children and their teachers. One day (two hours) a week is spent preparing activities and discussing the previous week’s session. The other day (two hours) is spent out in the school, working with the children. Writing assignments include short reflection papers on the readings or the week’s session and vary depending on the number of credits the student is signed up for. This is tough but rewarding work. It is perfect for students wanting to do applied and clinical work with children, but students from any major are welcome. Students who are interested should contact Dr. Troop-Gordon at wpg0006@auburn.edu to set up an interview.

The Office of Public Service was awarded a $60,000 grant by the Financial Health Network’s (FHN) Financial Solutions Lab in December 2021 to facilitate a pilot program and system mapping of the current process to obtain government issued identification through a justice-involved institution. The FHN and Alabama Appleseed identified lack of government-issued identification as a barrier to the financial health of those who are incarcerated.


Following initial meetings with Alabama state agencies such as the Department of Corrections (ADOC), Department of Youth Services (ADYS), Department of Public Health (ADPH), Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), and Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, Dr. Hollie Cost (AVP for University Outreach and Public Service), Tori Ho (Office of Public Service Graduate Assistant), and the David Mathews Center for Civic Life (DMC) convened the state agencies, justice-involved individuals, and community-based reentry organizations to discuss their current process and experiences in obtaining identification for their populations or as a formerly incarcerated individual. All parties shared their institutional knowledge and experience and provided feedback to assist the DMC with proposing a new pathway to secure identification for 10-30 individuals during a pilot.


As the project concluded, DOC withdrew from participation in the pilot; however, DYS secured a nondriver’s ID or duplicate driver’s license for 50committed youth, and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office secured a nondriver’s ID for 2 inmates. DYS has committed to fully integrating this process into each youth’s commitment. Justice involved youth expressed their appreciation and enthusiasm for securing these identifications and indicated they would use them to secure jobs and attend colleges and universities after returning home. Justice involved adults were excited about the prospect of using their new identifications to establish bank accounts and careers.
