Profil


Are you passionate about social and environmental change, enjoy working with groups, and wish you could help connect people to services and opportunities in their community? Then the Community Development Work program is for you.

This offering will prepare you for an interdisciplinary field, working with groups experiencing marginalization. You'll build skills in critical thinking of matters such as social justice, anti-oppressive practice, sustainable development, community engagement, community asset-mapping, fundraising, team building, collaborative leadership, project management, research and project evaluation.

Expert guest speakers, field trips, and collaborative projects with local and international NGOs attached to student learning evaluations and assessments will all be components of this program's courses and learning outcomes. You'll also learn from experienced and passionate faculty members who come from a diverse range of local and international community development settings and educational backgrounds.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of this program is how you'll connect theory to practice through field placement learning opportunities. You'll engage in field placement opportunities/on-the job internship experiences with organizations, institutions and social enterprises actively engaged in community work.

Please note: This program is taught using a combination of modalities. Courses may be delivered face-to-face, online, or in a blended/hybrid combination of both online and traditional classroom teaching.

Program Highlights

  • The Community Development Work program will provide you with the opportunity to practice your acquired knowledge under the supervision of community practitioners in two separate real-world fieldwork settings during the third and fourth semesters.
  • You'll be exposed to opportunities for international development placements.
  • As a student of the School of Community and Health Studies program, you'll work in communities to advocate for change strategies that promote social, economic and environmental justice, and challenge patterns of oppression and discrimination.


Global Citizenship and Equity Portfolio

You'll develop a portfolio documenting your engagement with the College's signature Global Citizenship and Equity (GC&E) competencies. For more information on GC&E, the GC&E portfolio and the supports available to you, please visit www.centennialcollege.ca/citizenshipandequity.
