The #GoAbroadSquad is a team composed of students that have or are going to have study/co-op/work abroad experiences at Georgian College.
We aim to empower all Georgian College students to become change-makers through international experiential learning.
The #GoAbroadSquad creates social change in all Georgian College campuses. It a great resource and platform for students who have an interest in studying or working abroad. Also, if a student attending the session is already planning to go abroad it will be a great chance for them to meet some of the team specifically to help them with their journey (prior, during and arriving back in Canada) and join us.
Within the next year, the Go Abroad Squad will help create a (global) platform/ecosystem and movement both online and in person to help students acquire the education, skills, and resources necessary to work, study live abroad. Ultimately help students learn how to thrive abroad and expand their worldview.
