This module builds on fundamental knowledge and skills in leisure and recreation. Careful attention is given to dimensions of social and cultural capital and their relationship with sport and recreation, determining and appraising recreation needs of communities and the contribution of sport and recreation in community development and transformation in contexts of peace and development, education, health and youth-at-risk. Special emphasis is placed on the role of sports volunteers in developing social capital through citizenship values and life skills. The principles and criteria of the African Sport Transformation Charter are analysed and synthesised in community recreation programmes. The student will perform academic service learning through community engagement in diverse communities.
