As part of this Spring 2012 program and its four-week Summer fieldwork component, students experience the challenges facing post-apartheid South Africa.  Students will have the opportunity to engage in direct service learning, working primarily with organizations that help the development of street children and individuals with AIDS.  This intense program will give students a broad understanding of the present day South African social context through developing relationships with South African activists, academics, other students and everyday South Africans.  Students will visit townships, rural communities, and urban development centers working towards social justice and solidarity.
