Service Learning: A Global Perspective

This presentation will focus on the importance of international service learning in order to better understand social work from a global perspective. It will specifically address the need for hands on experience in order to truly understand cultural difference as well as new ways of addressing ongoing social issues. The presenter will specifically use their exposure to the SOS Children's Village in Alwaye-Cochin to compare and contrast the U.S. model of foster care. The SOS village provides quality alternative care for children who cannot live with their biological families. This presentation will demonstrate how the presenter's learning is a direct result of international service learning.
