Find out about opportunities to volunteer, teach, or study abroad at information sessions during February and March. Global Impact, Teach in China, and Study Abroad offer three exciting opportunities to expand global learning for students, faculty and community members.
Global Impact offers a two-week hands-on volunteer experience in developing countries. In 2013 volunteers will go to Ghana, Vietnam and India. Seattle Community College students, faculty and staff, people from other institutions and the community can all take part. Participants help with health clinics, health education, and infrastructure development projects such as clean burning stoves and water filters.
Teach in China provides a paid intern experience for a semester teaching English conversation in China. Through an exchange agreement with our partner in China, community college students can work for a semester (4.5 months). Students do not need a Bachelor’s degree or ESL credential. After orientation and training, students are placed throughout China in public elementary, junior and senior high schools. Learn Chinese, gain cross-cultural and teaching experience, earn a little money, and have a great adventure!
Study Abroad is for students. Quarter-long programs in London, Florence, Costa Rica, South Africa or Spain can be arranged through Seattle Community Colleges in coordination with Washington Community Colleges Consortium for Study Abroad. Other opportunities to earn credits for overseas studies are also available.
