"I'm sure when I ponder my life experiences, during the twilight of my years, I will regard my six weeks in Thailand as six of the most sensational weeks of my life... I traveled to Thailand hoping for an enriching experience. What I found exceeded my wildest expectations."
Chris Cox, International Health Program, Thailand

I highly recommend the truly unique and always highly rated Global Service Corps semester length service learning programs in Tanzania and Cambodia. The variety and high quality of the urban and rural living experiences, the academic component and the opportunity to work closely with community development professionals make this one of the best semester programs offered by the University at Albany, SUNY.  James M. Pasquill II, Director of Study Abroad and Exchanges, University at Albany

PROGRAM UPDATE: After 20 years of service in East Africa, GSC has concluded our work there and will be taking the best practices learned to our programs in Cuba. We are now offering a Conversational English Training Program in Cuba, with Sustainable Agriculture and Public Health programs to likely follow later in 2016. If you would like to learn more about our Cuba program, follow the link here.

We’ve decided to leave our Tanzania web pages up so visitors to our site can get an idea of the kind of work that we have done. Information can be found below on best practices lessons learned from our Tanzania program that will be carried over to our Cuba program.

Students, both undergraduate and graduate, from all disciplines are welcome to join any of the programs that GSC offers in Cambodia and Cuba. Programs can range from two weeks to six months or longer and can be combined for those interested in participating in more than one project.  Depending on your interest, the work varies from global health issues to English training, leadership development, orphanage care, and Buddhist Immersion. 

While each GSC program offers students a valuable experience in and of itself, students may also be able to earn college credit for their participation in any program. In addition to pursuing credit on an individual basis, GSC also provides the opportunity for students to join the new 15 Credit Semester Program in Cambodia. For more information on these upcoming programs as well as general information on how to obtain college credit, please refer to the links above.
