SNHU recently hosted a ‘friendraiser’ in partnership with Dream Catchers NH. Organizational Behaviours (OL-342) is taught by Dr. Lowell Matthews. This semester long project required students to not only work in the classroom but outside as well.
The event helped Dream Catchers spread the word about their organization, as well as involve the campus and community.
They are a non-profit organization, which helps provide social and confidence building activities for individuals with different intellectual, social and learning abilities.
Held in the ACC, the class hosted about 30 individuals from the organization, as well as people from all over Manchester and neighboring towns. Though the participation was not what they hoped for, it still helped spread the word.
“The best part of the event was seeing the impact on the members of Dream Catchers. They greatly appreciated the opportunity to connect in a social context with SNHU students. It was also powerful to see SNHU students being willing to share and connect with the members of Dream Catchers,” said Matthews.
“My favorite part was being able to execute what we had been working on all semester,” added junior Chris Moquin, one of the students in the class.
Throughout the semester long course, students were split into four different groups to help organize the event. Each group had a different problem or issue that they had to help solve and will present to the Board of Directors on April 26.
