Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Program - South Africa Summer 2021

Brockport’s Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Program returns for Summer 2021 with a new NGO partnership in South Africa.

Brockport’s Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Program will return for Summer 2021. Brand new partnership with an international NGO in South Africa will allow students to earn credit while making a difference in the world.

The Brockport Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Programs were modeled after the SUNY Coil Global Commons program and began at Brockport in Winter 2020/21. We are excited to announce our newest course in this series which will be offered in Summer 2021:

  • Reducing Inequalities: Using Education and Physical Activity to Support Learners in South Africa with Melanie Perreault 

In these Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Programs, students will contribute to global sustainability by completing a project in small groups, in partnership with community based and nonprofit organizations around the world.  Students will gain skills in intercultural communications and collaboration by completing a project for one of these partner organizations through the framework of the United Nations Sustainability Goals. Partner organizations around the world will work with groups of students to develop these stories and receive use of the final products.

Students will receive 3 credits for this program.
