Understanding Community I

This introductory course affords students the opportunity to develop a framework for organizing outings in the community and to explore, using public transit, the City of Edmonton and the surrounding region, including parks, recreation and arts facilities, libraries, and other services, as well as the NorQuest community and special events. Students will gain an understanding of the range of possibilities in which they can participate with the people they serve in the field of community studies. Students will critically reflect on how community resources can bring meaning and joy into the lives of others. Students will also reflect on the important roles that volunteers play in organizations and communities, as well as the impact that their volunteerism has on themselves and others.

Note: Restricted to Community Support Worker, Disability Studies and Child & Youth Care
