Brazil MD ILI (November 3 – 10, 2013)
This seven-day immersion experience includes learning streams focused on issues of cross-cultural relationships, the complexities around class, race and ethnicity, and global perspectives on diversity and inclusion. Brazil is a rich country with multiple populations including the Indigenous population, Afro-Brazilians, Asian immigrants, and descendants from Portugal, Italy and other European countries. Each of these areas will be explored in an effort to expand awareness and enhance understanding around global connectedness. Participants will meet with staff, volunteers, and community partners of the YMCAs in Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre and participate in innovative service-learning activities.
