Community Service Learning is where university discipline knowledge meets community need.
Students have been participating in projects for three years - running dinners for Anti-Poverty Week; working on engineering projects for Riding for the Disabled; mentoring children with special needs at Modbury Special School and lending a hand where it is needed.
In exchange, the students have been developing career-bankable skills for their CVs.
A unique opportunity exists for a duo of Journalism students to explore the potential of Community Service Learning Projects through a range of media.
It is envisaged students will:
Identify, write and promote human interest stories to internal UniSA media
Work in collaboration with community partners to raise the profile of their work, as it relates to student projects
Run a seminar around using the media and news values for Community Service Learning students
Source stories around larger issues of economic and social importance.
Through this work, you will gain a unique opportunity to network with a range of government, semi-government and not-for-profit organisations, while gaining a good insight into the big picture community issues which affect us all.
This is a resume building project for the right students and participation in the project will be competitive.
If you want to make a difference to community, and you are interested in developing your skills in the areas listed above contact me directly.
