The Brock Abroad (BA) Program welcomes all members of the Brock community to take advantage of this exciting short-term volunteer placement opportunity in Africa. In 2013, BA: Namibia will be entering its 7th year!
Participants will have the opportunity to volunteer by working with children, other university students and adults. Participants work alongside local partners, learning not only about the country but about themselves and their place in the world. The program also provides students with social events and travel opportunities to experience the varied culture within each country. Students are encouraged to explore key social issues (poverty, education, community development).
The BA program has a learning outcome attached to the volunteer/service component. It is important to recognize that it is not a form of charity. Participants are encouraged to see themselves on the same level as our hosts – we have as much to learn from them as they do from us.
