The Community Engagement Learning Project is a short course that provides students with the opportunity to engage with a not-for-profit or government organisation by undertaking a group project identified by the organisation. Students will meet with leaders of the organisation and present their project work at the end of the course. As an alternative, students may organise a 20-hour placement in a not-for-profit or government organisation, subject to the approval of the course coordinator. The course has an important academic component. Students will explore the concept of community engagement, the role of the community sector in Australia, the context in which the sector operates, and the tools the sector has available to it to deliver services, influence policy and programs, and provide information to its client groups. Students will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills through the seminar program as well as engaging with a local organisation that delivers services to the community. Attendance at seminars is compulsory.
