Kickact: The Implementation & Evaluation Of A Youth Empowerment & Leadership Program, Crystal M. Denny 2016 SIT Graduate Institute

Kickact: The Implementation & Evaluation Of A Youth Empowerment & Leadership Program, Crystal M. Denny

Capstone Collection

KickAct is a program that combines martial arts and performing arts to empower youth and engage them in creative social change. Youth experience a lack of community engagement and partnership with the adult. Many youth face additional challenges, ranging from lack of support in school to violence at home, that can negatively impact their life. KickAct is designed to provide youth with the necessary skills and experience to thrive as active participants in their communities. Due to inconsistent attendance and participation, it was not possible to determine whether the workshop format was a successful method for youth empowerment. However, the ...

Estimating Total Number Of Attendees To An Open Free Non-Gated Outdoor Cultural Event – A Case Of Zora! Festival In Eatonville, Florida, Usa, Tadayuki Hara, Kimberly S. Severt, Valeriya Shapoval

Journal of Tourism Economics, Policy and Hospitality Management

The purpose of this study is to make better estimation of number of attendees to an open, free cultural festival. After reviewing various advanced and available techniques, including aerial photographs and forecasting methods, we choose to utilize a simple quantitative method of counting attendees physically at four multiple points of entry to an open, free festival, where researchers are estimated to capture 80~95% of all attendees according to organizers, town administrators and residents. We used the structured sampling of 15 minutes’ actual counting in every hour at four locations, including three entry points and one central point, with hand-held ...


Overcoming Fraud & Dishonesty In The Hospitality Industry, James Peter Murphy 2016 Dublin Institute of Technology

Overcoming Fraud & Dishonesty In The Hospitality Industry, James Peter Murphy

Conference papers

The licensed industry is an increasingly competitive market place, many bars have responded by empowering staff and undertaking structural and management reforms in recent years. Undoubtedly, these changes have significantly raised the levels of customer service and enhanced customer satisfaction. Paradoxically these changes, combined with the responsibilities allocated to bar staff and management to supervise and manage bars with autonomous control have created more fertile conditions, scope and opportunity for dishonest actions by staff members.

The way licensed premises approach the issue of staff fraud is changing in response to the increased risk. Many bars have historically been anxious to ...


Westerville Jaycee Pool, Myranda M. Wolfe, Taylor E. Detwiler, Kyle M. Burrowes, Phillip J. Cochran 2016 Otterbein University

Westerville Jaycee Pool, Myranda M. Wolfe, Taylor E. Detwiler, Kyle M. Burrowes, Phillip J. Cochran

SYE Legacies: Student Group Projects

Due to low attendance and poor community support, the owner of the Westerville Jaycee (WJC) Swimming Pool considered permanently closing this facility two years ago. The goal of this project was to increase awareness for WJC and draw attention to the property itself. By setting objectives to improve the landscaping conditions, and creating a social media presence for WJC, we hoped to achieve these goals. To meet these objectives, the team created a WJC Twitter account, and asked that friends and family like and share their preexisting Facebook page. Our team also contacted several companies to inquire about landscaping donations ...


Authoritative Coaching: Building Youth Through Athletics, Christian S. Brinton 2015 Brigham Young University - Provo

Authoritative Coaching: Building Youth Through Athletics, Christian S. Brinton

All Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to determine the existence and extent of the relationship of coaching styles and adolescent athletes in terms of Self Determination Theory (SDT). Specifically, this study adapted Baumrind’s parenting styles of authoritative, authoritarian, and permissiveness to coaching styles and examined the relationship between each coaching style and the tenets of SDT, namely competence, autonomy, and relatedness. This study also examined the effect of the number of years an athlete participated in a chosen sport, the number of years played on a specific team, and the number of years played for a particular coach. The ...
