Global Citizenship & Equity Learning Experience
George Brown College
In July of 2013, George Brown College and the Power to Be International partnered to provide a team of faculty and students with the opportunity to travel to Jamaica and participate in the summer Literacy Program. Since that time the partnership has emerged into a dynamic relationship in which students engage in in an immersive learning environment providing them with the opportunity to learn about the Jamaican culture, history and politics as well as gain hands on experience working with children and interacting with the community. Students walk away with enhanced interpersonal skills, a deeper understanding of service leadership and privilege and an overall life changing experience.
