At Shopfront, we are committed to building a strong and sustainable community sector. We provide a pro bono service that partners community organisations with the skills and expertise of students and academics at UTS.
There are three main areas we work with community organisations: Student Community Coursework Projects, finding volunteers, and supporting Community Engaged Research.
Community Projects, through our award winning Student Community Coursework Projects, community organisations are paired with skilled student teams to deliver on a wide variety of community-led projects. Find out more about community projects here.
We can help you find volunteers through our student leadership and volunteering program, the UTS SOUL Award. Students who are trained in skills relevant to volunteering in community-based settings are available on a on off or ongoing basis. Find out more about how to find student volunteers here.
We support Community Engaged Research, through a number of projects. We have a yearly research journal, Gateways, that has space for, and encourages submission from, people working in community-based organisations. There is also the opportunity to have final year undergraduate or postgraduate students conduct research-based projects as part of our Community Projects. We are also open to discussing ideas and opportunities for collaborative research projects. For more information on Community Engaged Research see here.
