Community of PracticeLearn about and actively contribute to EWB Australia’s work, in areas that align with your skills, interests and experience.
EWB Australia’s Community of Practice is a space where you can learn about and contribute to our approach to working with communities and our program areas and projects. You can connect with others in the EWB movement, access training opportunities to develop professional and technical skills, and gain knowledge and experience. You’ll also have opportunities to contribute to projects that contribute to EWB’s work locally and internationally.
The skills, knowledge and experience you develop and the contribution you make to the EWB community by participating in EWB’s Community of Practice is highly valued during EWB’s evaluation processes for formal volunteer positions, recruited via the EWB Volunteer Roster (soon to be launched).
