Program Overview

Program Description:
Service-learning has become a cornerstone of higher education and students graduating with an international experience in service-learning strongly improve their chances of finding employment related to their field. We offer students the opportunity of working on a global service-learning project in a local Fijian village: entrepreneurship (developing a for-profit tourism business enterprise)

For each option, you will be placed, as part of a small group, in an island village to work with community elders and members. A UGA instructor will be with you during the program to help guide the service project. The projects are designed to foster opportunities to nurture global awareness, develop skills in leadership, reflect on how culture, politics, and national identity impact education, and provide support for village life in Fiji.

Program cost includes all accommodations, field excursions, cultural events, insurance, in-country ground transportation, and all meals. Tuition (HOPE applies and out-of-state or non-UGA students pay in-state tuition) and airfare (optional group rate available, TBA) are additional. Departure from the U.S. is June 1 (to arrive in Fiji on June 3).
Setting Description:
ollowing a visit at the University of Fiji, we spend 3 – 4 days at an island resort to prepare your team for the project, before embarking on our village stay to work with chiefly elders, teachers, students, and the community on the offshore Yasawa islands and/or on the main island of Viti Levu. We return to a resort for the final few days of the program for debriefing and follow-up. You will work in small groups to complete your project.

$1,095
