Global Service Immersion Program Applications Now Open

Posted by on Friday, October 6, 2017 in featured, news.

OACS is now accepting student applications for summer 2018 service-learning programs to Ecuador, Morocco, Bulgaria/Norway, and South Africa. Applications will be due November 15th.

OACS Global Service Programs challenge students to question their perspectives and roles in the shared human experience through pre-service curriculum, intensive service, post-service skills application, and continuous reflection. The programs are carefully planned in order to best facilitate students’ abilities to connect meaningfully with people different from themselves through humble engagement and reciprocal dialogues within host communities. Through this exposure to firsthand knowledge and lived experiences, students will examine the deeper issues related to equity and justice and identify systematic barriers to equality and inclusivity. Students with a sincere desire to grapple with the complexity of human connectedness, to challenge their known values, and to reconcile academic knowledge with an authentic exploration of social and environmental injustices are encouraged to apply for an OACS Global Service Program.

If you are interested in applying, please review the OACS Global Programs webpage, attend one of the information sessions listed below, and/or contact oacs@vanderbilt.edu.
