Books in Homes Australia has been working with Macquarie University’s PACE program since 2012, and our partnership has been growing ever since. The PACE Program provides undergraduate students with valuable work experience with partner organisations such as ours.
Books in Homes Australia has benefitted greatly from this relationship, by receiving professional, pro-Bono research with the advantage of third party objectivity. It has helped us gain invaluable first-hand knowledge of the communities we service, and taught us important lessons about student mentorship.
Our most recent PACE project involved three students travelling up to Maningrida in remote Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory to evaluate our Programme. We are very happy to share with you this short video, filmed and produced by PACE over the course of this trip. It’s a really fantastic look into how the Books in Homes Programme works in remote Australia, and the research that our PACE students are doing.
We would love for you to view the film below, and we encourage you to share it amongst your colleagues and friends.
Books in Homes Australia cannot speak more highly of the enthusiasm of the PACE students and staff, and the professionalism of their work. If you’d like to find out more about the Macquarie University PACE program, please check out their website at www.pace.mq.edu.au.
