Community Volunteering - Global Information Session

The Faculty of Arts is offering an exciting international community volunteering opportunity with the subject Community Volunteering – Global (MULT20014 or MULT30021). We would like to invite you to attend an information session to find out more!

In partnership with several respected volunteer organisations and development agencies, students have the opportunity to spend time working in a local community in Southeast Asia, making a contribution through project work, research and engagement with locally run development organisations.

Working in small groups, you will be assigned an action research project focused on building awareness and advocacy of a social inclusion issue faced by a marginalised group within the local community. You will support the local partner organisations to work with individuals, organisations and communities in response to locally identified community priorities.

Who can take part?

Community Volunteering – Global is available to Faculty of Arts undergraduate students in their second or third year of study, and is also able to be credited towards breadth studies for students in other faculties.

Students will be enrolled in the Community Volunteering – Global intensive subject over the winter break and will be awarded 12.5 credit points on satisfactory completion.
