Our Projects2018-07-25T16:20:34+00:00

We innovate with refugee communities to create lasting, purpose driven projects that tackle complex social challenges. We support communities to design and test their own social projects in partnership with more established Australian community groups.  These projects are eventually owned and independently run by the community, becoming a sustainable part of their social and cultural infrastructure.

Project: Careers

A unique careers program designed with and for the Australian Hazara community. Project Careers is a SymLab collaboration between Community Four and the Victorian Afghan Associations Network (VAAN). It brings together business, community and social innovators to design a program tailored which engages Hazara community members in unlocking their potential.

Project Careers aims to be the antidote to failing one-size-fits-all careers and employment programs to provide businesses and community members with real opportunities to diversify their knowledge and skills base.

Project: Hospitality Pathways – West African Community

A partnership between Proud Mary Coffee Company, Southern Rivers Community Services and Community Four this project focuses on linking the West African Community with the Inner City hospitality Industry. Thanks to the commitment of both these communities, we are creating an industry standard pathways program for West African women. Community Four is playing a technical bridging role in developing strong bonds between these two communities and assisting in the development of social impact programs such as Hospitality Pathways that are community based and operated.

Project: English and Life Skills for Australian Hazara Women

A partnership with Australian Hazara Women’s Friendship Network (AHWFN), the English and Lifeskills Project seeks to strengthen the work of AHWFN in empowering their community, through the co-development of a literacy, language, life-skills and networking curriculum for over 40 women living in Melbourne’s south-east.
