Community Service Learning Students have a long and proud tradition working with this team at UniSA and have participated in a number of roles including:

  • Sport coaching and skills development
  • Research and evaluation
  • Media work
  • Fundraising, business development and marketing
  • Project/event management
  • Site coordination

Youth leadership; coaching and training

Joining the Sport & Development program as a Community Service Learning student, gives access to a comprehensive suite of training and accreditation opportunities to help coaches and youth leaders to really make a difference in the community through sport. These include both compulsory and discretionary training courses and intend to prepare coaches and youth leaders to become effective role models, enhance their leadership skills, gain confidence and acquire coaching knowledge. Coaches and youth leaders will gain formal accreditation certificates from government and sport organisations, including Australian Sports Commission, the Office for Recreation and Sport and relevant State Sport Organisations.
