Our goal is to offer Brock students a unique learning abroad experience, connecting career goals with social justice. SEA program provides opportunities to explore the realms of hands-on solidarity, cultural immersion and spirituality, while working on community development projects.
Since the inception of Solidarity Experiences Abroad in 2004, over 900 Brock students have made the decision to engage in this innovative program. Students work in a variety of areas gaining valuable practical experience. Whether students work in education, healthcare, social responsibility or sustainable development projects, they agree that this program is unlike anything they have experienced in University. Through the experience they develop a deeper sense of global awareness and a greater inspiration to develop their personal career goals.
Volunteer opportunities, languange classes, lectures, and cultural excursions all provide exposure to the local culture, social justice issues, spirituality, and the community. Together as a group of individuals, Brock students grow and discover their own passion to help and make a difference in the world.
