27002 Community Engagement

This subject enables students to participate in an international community project. Students actively engage in a series of unique and demanding educational experiences during the preparation, participation and evaluation phases of their projects. Hands-on community work allows students to gain invaluable personal and career experience, as well as build powerful life and job skills that can be applied towards future community building initiatives. Community engagement activities are designed to inspire and inform students about the various issues surrounding development and philanthropic community projects. Involvement in community projects encourage students to cultivate an understanding of the value of community development work through results-oriented community-based activities. This learning atmosphere contributes to a positive self-image through team-based, success-orientated activities while, at the same time, extends individuals' self awareness by creating opportunities for the identification of personal strengths and clarification of individual needs and goals.
