Working with community partners to develop fully rounded students through workshops and courses is an important part of the college ethos.
Community partners include:
- Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation (ADMAF)
- Abu Dhabi Council for Economic Development
- Al Dhafra Sports Club
- Environment Agency Abu Dhabi
- Khalifa Fund
- New York University
- Red Crescent
- The Emirates Foundation for Youth Development
Working within the community, to improve the lives and environment of others is a very important part of the teaching at the colleges. Learning how to give back to the community, students work on many different projects during their time at the colleges; for example working with Red Crescent on their various projects, supporting the prisons to improve the lives of prisoners, helping children from Al Ain without families, visiting the old and sick in and out of hospital, and supporting construction workers, security guards and cleaners.
Students also work on business ideas that will improve the lifestyle in their community, becoming young entrepreneurs and creating businesses that will make a difference, such as starting a community nursery where there are currently none available.
