We at Feet on the Street along with Stephanie Appel of Core Learning, Inc. are pleased to offer tours for Social Workers. These workshops are bus tour/continuing education programs where participants will step out of a "classroom" and onto a bus to visit sites and hear from presenters who will address issues facing Detroit and the Metropolitan Region. Through these experiential learning opportunities, participants will learn more about critical and current issues, such as: food issues, diversity, ethnic and cultural traditions, land use, transportation, area history, local programs and services, blight removal and rehab efforts. Please note, these programs are open to anyone interested in the topic.
