The Grade 10 expedition explored community development by learning from and critically analyzing organizations working with local communities in Battambang, Cambodia. Students had the opportunity to visit organizations ranging from well established and popularized international non-government organizations, to local NGO’s and social enterprises, as well as local for-profit businesses only operating in Battambang. JUMP! Experiences designed this program to engage students in critical thinking about the world they live in and ask questions such as: Who benefits from short-term service? What is privilege? What does sustainable development look like? How can we empower local communities? How can we use concepts of Global Citizenship to bring about positive social change?
