    Community Organizing for Social Transformation

    Wednesday, August 31 - Thursday, September 8, 2022
    Cost: $2200

    Get an inside glimpse of Costa Rica and learn about its complexities and challenges as well as its achievements. You will hear from the local people, community experts, and leaders who are striving to create a stronger and more just society. Each from a different perspective, from environmental and indigenous justice and the complexities of ecotourism, to the first-hand stories of migration, immigration, and deportation woven among the interactive experiences and daily reflection sessions. We will be partnering with Augsburg University Center for Global Education and Experience, who have decades of collaboration experience in the area, and invite us to experience a variety of field encounters that stem from their long-term relationships in each community.

    International Travel: This immersion includes traveling abroad, you will need a valid passport and proof of vaccination to participate. Passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. 


    Please note: Although this video is from CGEE's semester program, the two programs hold many similarities and the video serves as a great example of the Costa Rica immersion experience.
