Overview: A windshield survey happens when you make observations about a community by driving or walking through that community. Conducting a
windshield survey for this class will provide you with a foundation for completing a thorough community assessment. This will give you an opportunity to learn a
new process that will help you understand the community you serve or a community you want to learn more about.
