Participating on a Community Based Project is a fantastic way to make a real difference to our local community and to better the lives of people who live in our community. The one thing all community projects have in common is that they are ultimately geared towards changing collective lives for the better, and in helping to accomplish this you will experience your own personal growth, develop invaluable new skills and gain a genuine sense of achievement. ReThink has allowed students to be part of some amazing Community Partner Projects!
