Change the world
The world is a big place, and there is a lot to discover out there. You’ve got so much to learn about yourself, and even more that you can give. Not everything worth learning can be learned within the walls of a classroom; sometimes the best way to learn is to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty.
With API community service programs, students will engage directly with the global community and learn useful skills with real-world applications. They will contribute to tangible improvements in other parts of the globe that seem far away at first. Through their community service work, participants realize that other cultures and communities are not that different from their own. Their world will become significantly smaller. Students also learn about the value of teamwork and the real impact that good will and coordination can have on a local community. All the while, they will be fostering better relationships with their fellow program participants and local community while gaining international experience in an increasingly globalized world.
