Over the course of the next eight months, each house of PULSE fellows will create a house project. These projects will benefit the Northside and East End communities. PULSE is utilizing an Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) approach for project research to fully understand the resources of the neighborhoods. Each house has started the
initial stages of the project by researching the assets of each community. In their exploration, they have identified churches, schools, businesses, nonprofits, and other entities that provide physical, economic, social, or cultural benefits to the community. Based on the preliminary research, the Northside cohort hopes to focus on projects that will impact children in the neighborhood in positive ways. Similarly, the East End cohort has been busy researching what types of projects will have the most meaningful impact for the neighborhood. PULSErs will spend portions of seminar reporting on their progress as well as engaging the broader community about their findings.
