In a highly interactive class environment, students will learn the history, principles and models of community development, with an emphasis on its role in empowering disenfranchised communities. Through in-depth class discussions, they will explore the relationship between community development theory and their own lived experience in community and with community organizations including Indigenous communities and their organizations. Classes will be offered in community settings using in person, online and mixed modes of delivery. Students with volunteer experience in community organizations who want to move into paid work are encouraged to apply.
