Community Service Learning and Study Abroad

Click on the picture to see a slide show with pictures and information.

My facebook friend Beatriz Urraca posted the other day about a community service learning course she is co-leading in Mexico this January 2015. The course is offered through Widener University. (I love the fact that "Civic Engagement" is a prominent tab on their univeristy's home page.)

I'll let you take a look at the slide show to see more details, but what I love about this trip is that it focuses on indigenous communities, the cooperatives they have built as solutions to the challenges they (not outsiders) perceive as important.

This looks like a great model of a short-term, study-abroad community service learning course.
