Planning a global service learning program?

VN Abroad Center for Social Justice coordinates group and academic programs that align with our goals and mission statement of ethical study abroad and cross-cultural learning to promote social justice. 

From pre-departure orientation to on-the-ground logistics, we collaborate with faculty and group leaders to coordinate all aspects of your abroad program. 

We align academic content with the needs of our community partners and organize housing, transportation, lectures, organization/site visits, activities, cultural and recreational excursions, and service learning projects.


VN Abroad organized everything  " from housing to patient caseloads to cultural excursions. It was hands-down the most significant and impactful week of my career, both as a PT and as an educator. "
