Community Engaged Work (CEW)

Student Spotlight Lee Ming Han

Community Engaged Work encourages SUSS students to explore potential career pathways and gain professional experience through full-time or part-time internships in the community, social and public sector.

Students may undertake Community Engaged Work at a non-profit, social service agency, public sector institution, social enterprise or Certified B Corporation.

Internships are full-time, part-time or temporary work which allow students to gather their work experience, acquire work-related skills, build their network, etc.

Students self-sourcing for CE internship opportunities can consider applying to the following programmes:

Students enrolled in the SUSS full-time programme are required to complete a minimum 24-week full-time work attachment (WA) relating to their professional major as part of the experiential graduation requirements.

The Volunteer Management Fellowship programme promotes the professionalisation of volunteer management (VM) in the social and community sector. Fellows are trained and provided with VM internship opportunities so that they will be able to build experiences and connections to related employment opportunities in the social sector in the future.

As part of the programme, potential fellows will:

a) successfully complete the course OCE165 Volunteer Resource Management to be admitted to the fellowship

b) undertake a part-time/full-time job placement related to volunteer management

c) attend a Community of Practice facilitated by an experienced VM practitioner
