Community Action Projects

Our renowned Community Action Projects address pressing social and economic needs and provide a tangible return on investment to the community from the Tasmanian Leaders Program.

Community Action Projects are delivered by Tasmanian Leaders Program participants working in small groups called Learning Sets. The Projects reinforce and develop learnings gained by participants during the year-long Tasmanian Leaders Program.

The following guidelines apply in developing Projects. They should:

  • Be small enough to be achievable.
  • Be large enough to matter.
  • Aspire to make a positive contribution.
  • Increase community wellbeing.

Learning Sets adopt formal project management processes and often partner with existing not-for-profit organisations to ensure they are addressing real needs.
