Community Engaged Work

 

Objective

To provide opportunities for SUSS students to undertake full-time or part-time work relating to their professional majors with a non-profit, social service agency or social enterprise.

Type of Engagement

  1. Community Engaged Internship
    • 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.
    • Internship is not a graduation requirement by the Office of Career Development, thus they are not required to submit any documentation.
    • However, should students choose to undertake an internship in a non-profit, social service agency or social enterprise, they are encouraged to propose their internship in fulfilment of their Community Engagement (CE) graduation requirement, subject to the approval of the Office of Service-Learning & Community Engagement (OSLCE). In line with other pathways for Community Engagement, students are required to submit the following to OSLCE:
      - Community Engagement Proposal
      - Closure Report
      - Self-Evaluation Form (Self & Mentor)
      - CE Portfolio - Reflection
      - Acknowledgement of Risks & PDPA
    • Duration of the internship engagement, job description and benefits (if any) will be determined by the organisation.

  2. Community Engaged Work Attachment
    • 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 their graduation requirements.
    • Should a student decide to do their work attachment in a non-profit, social service agency or social enterprise, they are encouraged to propose their work attachment in fulfillment of their CE graduation requirement subject to the approval of both the:
      - Office of Service-Learning & Community Engagement and
      - Career Development Office.
    • Students will be mentored by the WA mentor from the Career Development Office and their performance during the work attachment will be evaluated.
    • Duration of the work attachment, job description and benefits (if any) will be determined by the organisation, however it will be subject to approval from the Career Development Office.
