VSL-3: Climate Change around the Globe

Climate change is real.

Amizade’s Climate Change around the Globe will take participants on a virtual service-learning trip to four of our community partner sites. Engaging in this way will allow participants to deepen their understanding of the global impact of global warming. Participants will be guided through a process of identifying the impact of global warming in their communities, as well as how they can be helpers in their communities over the short and long terms. Contact us to hear more about the community partners available for this program.

TIME FRAME

This is a synchronous program. Over 5 consecutive days participants will join one another in an online learning space for 3 hours per day. This module is stackable, meaning it can be built for multi-week and multi-country programs.

PURPOSE

Students will have the opportunity to do service by exploring global warming and its impact in their local context. They will be guided through a process of identifying how to be helpers in their communities over the short and long terms.

SERVICE

• Facilitated reflective practice activities to explore themes like stereotypes, how to be ‘helpers’ during COVID-19, and what it means to be a global citizen under stay at home orders.
• Opportunities to engage in service by exploring global warming and its impact in their local context. Students will identify how global warming affects their communities and will be guided through a process of identifying how to be in the short and long term.

COST

The cost of this program is based on a need-based sliding scale but averages $2,500 for the first program week for groups of 5-15. Multi-week and multi-country programs are entirely customizable and decrease in cost the longer the program.
