Student Community Service and Volunteering Centres

Student Community Service and Volunteering Centres

A Student Community Service and Volunteering Centre has been established at each Asian partner University.It will strive to encourage and facilitate student volunteering and non-profit work and is intended to improve students’ contact and interaction with the citizen, social and public sectors outside the University. Student activities supported by the Centres will facilitate the development of a variety of transversal employability skills as well as professional skills for the social service, social responsibility and sustainable development professional fields.

The Centres will be a counterpart to the Talent Co-Creation Labs. While the Talent Co-Creation Labs focus on linking students to industry and business, the Centres focus on linking students to the world of non-profit and social work. The two structures can thus cater to the needs of different students and develop different employability skills.

Each Asian partner University has developed a framework that outlines the design and planned operations of its Student Community Service and Volunteering Centre and clarifies its place within the University structure, its functioning, management and activities, as well as applicable rules and regulations.
