Experiential Learning Programs with Global Impact!
Squads are virtual or in-person international service-learning programs with a skill-based focus that supports the health and economic development objectives of community partners abroad.
Improve health outcomes by supporting ‘school health campaigns’ and ‘mobile medical clinics in underserved communities.
Each Squad faculty leader chooses a skill-based program and country to then participate with their students virtually or in-country alongside our local teams that work year-round to create continuity between groups. Our strong community partnerships and expert in-country staff have established an unparalleled track record for safety and program impact.
Each Squad is one critical piece of a larger system for sustainable development. Collectively, we mobilize hundreds of groups a year that fund and support a team of local development specialists to work collaboratively with community leaders to improve health, education, and economic outcomes year-round.
Each Squads program builds upon and applies professionals skills in the areas of Health, STEM, Education and Business targeting UN Sustainable Goals in partner communities.
A Squads’ success transcends the impact made in the community by also transforming the world perspective of students. We help build global citizens with cultural competence and ﬁrst hand experience that help shape cultural awareness back home.
