Study abroad in South Africa

 

South Africa

 

Service learning sites for field placement

Service learning sites provide opportunities to engage in community education, empowerment, mediation, training, research and more. Past students have worked with local nonprofits that address issues as diverse as HIV/AIDS and other health concerns, family violence, gender inequities, sustainable living, and the education and development of youth.

As a required part of the curriculum in South Africa, you will work with a grassroots, community-based organization two days a week. These organizations provide services for and advocate on behalf of people whose voices are not heard — people who continue to struggle with injustice and pervasive poverty. They also encourage those they serve to build their own capacity to address needs and be voices for change.
