Our Projects

What is a Good Project?

What elements should a good project have?

A good project must,

  • satisfy a real need in the community. [ this is the most important criteria]
  • be a good match between satisfying a real need of the community and the skills of the participating RC students.
  • be a good match between satisfying a real need of the community and the resources available to the participating RC students.
  • be cost effective- the students must find resources and must find or create funding.
  • be ethical.
  • be environmentally sensitive.

 A good project should be sustainable.

 A good project will also provide RC students with opportunities for growth.
