AISA and Service Learning: Me to We’s Family Adventure featured in the New York Times!
This year AISA has partnered with the Canadian children’s rights charity Free the Children to build classrooms in Kenya’s Masai Mara. AISA’s Executive Director – Dr. Peter Bateman had the privilege to share in this life changing experience and interact with the youth, community and staff of Free the Children while visiting their centre at Bogani, Kenya.
While there he saw firsthand the transformative effect these volunteer trips have on young people from around the world as they engage in international trips that allow them (often accompanied by their families) to participate in community development projects. AISA is very keen to explore how such trips can be incorporated into the Service Learning Programmes of our member schools.
The New York Times this week featured “Me to We’s Family Adventure” family volunteer programmes. The article highlights the impact this type of trip has on developing socially conscious individuals who are dedicated to making a difference in global development. Me to We Volunteer Adventure is a partner company of Free the Children and offers an authentic and personalized volunteering experience centered on four key pillars: school-building, hands-on community education, cultural immersion and adventure in communities in several countries around the world.
