Community Outreach Programme — University of Leicester
Community Outreach Programme
This new programme, in collaboration with the University of Leicester. This will give Univesity of Leicester students the opportunity to work with young people from the local community to identify local needs and to investigate, analyse & advocate solutions.
Outline of Programme
Starts annually in November.
- You attend 2 workshops (Saturday 26th Nov 10 – 4, Friday 2nd Dec 4 – 7pm) where you will learn about the importance of Community Social Responsibility to large organisations and community groups. You will then work with young people from Highfields to design and plan projects to help meet their needs.
- You will work in teams to develop a range of leadership, team work and project management skills and will hopefully make a genuine difference to the community.
- You will also complete 15 hours of volunteering by mid-April implementing your project plan. You can start as soon as term starts.
