International Student Exchange Program (ISEP)

Connecting Communities

GEEC  International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) aims to educate others through real life, hands on experiences that impact change on an individual and global level through one adventure at a time. We recognise the importance of youth exchanges as a key component to building bridges between the U.S.A. and other countries around the world.
The GEEC engages service learners in various ways for participation in foreign travel to especially gain insight of the cultural perspectives of others and enhance their appreciation for their own career goals.  The ISEP is designed to broaden the awareness of student learners with respect to their connection to the global community and their potential contributions to it.  The EP would encourage students in various ways, from maintaining strategic interaction through online curriculums to hands-on learning through foreign travel to create educational opportunities with a lasting impact.
