Peter Faber Business School community engagement

This program will provide you with a deeper understanding of the contributions of social enterprises to the economy through first-hand experience of basic business operations. You will also receive valuable experience in the provision of services through a not-for-profit organisation.

The focus of the Peter Faber Business School community engagement is to develop four key principles: critical reflection, active learning, student involvement in service-learning and civic engagement experiences through action learning onsite, reflection and reporting.

You will develop important foundational professional skills, knowledge of social enterprise models, learn about the role of social entrepreneurs in creating social change, and deepen your understanding of the world around you.

"Being around children has always been fun for me, and I have always wanted to volunteer to help them. The community engagement volunteer placement as part of my degree was the push I needed in the right direction to get me started. I think it’s great that this is incorporated into my degree because it opens our eyes to another aspect of life as well as broadening my skills when joining the workforce. Volunteering is a fantastic way to make you appreciate what you have and be more generous with helping others."
