Griffith University’s Community Internship
As part of Griffith University’s approach to supporting students to apply your learning in the workplace, we would like to advise you of an interesting course that enables you to complete an internship for a community organisation. Read on for a a link to attend information sessions about this course.
By doing this course you will be able to:
- Make a difference in the community.
- Enhance your professional and personal skills.
- Build experience for your resume.
You can now choose a free-choice elective course that allows you to volunteer in the community for academic credit. This free-elective course provides an opportunity for you to engage your academic learning with a community-based real life project of around 50 hours in Semester I, II or Summer Semester.
Examples of projects completed by students in Semester I include:
- Finance Liaison and Promotions
- Event Coordinator
- Fundraising Researcher
- No Interest Loans (NILS) Officer
- Project Co-ordinator
- Social Media Engagement Researcher
- HR Assistant
- Administration Support
- Mum’s group support
- Homework clubs
- Court Support
- Youth mentoring
Many more options are available for you to choose from. Your activity will provide community benefit and could be structured activities, project work, or research, generally for not-for-profit organisations. It can be related to your discipline, or could be an opportunity to explore something outside of your normal discipline learning. If you are already volunteering, you may be able to use that activity as your internship.
We are running an Info Session particularly for those interested in enrolling in Semester II and Summer Semester 2012 / 2013. If you wish to attend please click here. To be eligible to enrol in Community Internship you must register in advance and be allocated to a community partner before enrolling in the course.
