International Service Programs allow students to collaborate with our partner communities in Ecuador and Nicaragua to contribute to long-term, comprehensive grassroots development projects. Global Student Embassy works with student leaders to start or join an existing GSE chapter on their university campus and mobilize their peers to travel abroad and volunteer with them.
Our program model combines a short-term service project along with supplementary workshops, site visits, and cultural activities geared to provide students with a strong understanding of international community development at the grassroots level and an enhanced global perspective. In each of our programs we engage in the practice of reflection, allowing students to critically analyze their experience and better understand how they can apply their learning’s to their personal and professional lives.
