Cambodia Service-Learning and Semester Program Expansion

(For more information about the Cuba Program, see below.) Volunteer and student participants are given the incredible opportunity to work alongside international development professionals on grassroots community service projects that seek to empower members of the communities we serve to improve their livelihoods.

Whether you are looking for short or long term travel opportunities that allow you to make a difference while exploring the world or are a university student looking to spend a semester or summer gaining field work experience, GSC has an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you.  

Community Development and Youth Leadership Training Program

Working with our community development and university partners, GSC has developed the Community Development and Youth Leadership Training Program facilitated by GSC volunteer participants. Working with organization staff and local students, GSC volunteers help empower youth and build a generation of active, peace-minded leaders.  The emphasis of the training is on developing emotional intelligence utilizing EQ training technology. Semester students as well as other service-learning volunteers have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of Cambodia youth and in the development of the Cambodian society.



  

“My time here has become a clarifying, learning and growing, reflective and forward-looking experience rolled into one, which has definitely taught me to better navigate the challenging environments within the developing world."- Anna W. Cambodia

Cuba Program Development

Building on the advances in the relationship between the United States and Cuba, GSC is in the process of developing Cuba service-learning volunteer programs. We may be offering a Conversational English Training Program in Cuba, Sustainable Agriculture, and Public Health programs as early as late 2016. The ground work including a pilot project for the Conversational English Training Program has already been accomplished. Government approval is now needed to continue this program. If you would like to  receive updates about the development of this program you may request more information by clicking this link.

You can also read about the pilot project at the GSC Executive Director's recent Cuba trip blog post.
