CAMP out at CHaSR!
We have established the CHaSR Associate Mentor Program (CAMP), an exciting program designed to facilitate opportunities for growth and partnership between local community organisations and CHaSR. Basically, it’s a program where our researchers can provide mentorship and a few basics (eg: a desk, computer, phone etc) for staff from community based organisations who may want or need to integrate better research principles and practices into their work.
CAMP provides a platform for collaboration and a fusion of different skills, knowledge and experiences in a mutually beneficial way. It will offer CAMPers an interesting opportunity to learn in an academic research environment, acquire knowledge and methods and apply these new skills to their work in the ‘real world’. For CHaSR researchers, it provides further community engagement opportunities and an understanding of the context in which their research approaches can be used in a real world setting.
At the end of the process, CAMPers will become CHaSR Associates provided with access to our monthly research seminars, quarterly newsletters and other professional network opportunities.
