Faculty Teaching Opportunities in Brazil

Our outreach to create global learning opportunities begins with developing workshops and classes for U.S. faculty to teach in Brazil.  Through our professional relationships in Brazil, we have established a network that connects us with middle and high school principals and educators, as well as faculty and administrators at colleges and universities.

International Student Camp

Brazilian students love to visit the U.S. during winter, which is why we offer “The Leader in Me” camps during January. The programming for our student camps focuses on developing student leaders combined with academic programming unique to your institution. We enroll 10-20 students per camp and work with our college/university partners to offer an in-residence/on-campus experience. Brazilian students gain an immersive English language experience and insight to life as a U.S. college student. University students get to glimpse life as an international student.

International Student Recruitment

Building relationships with educators, students and their families is the cornerstone of how we approach recruiting students internationally. Through the partnerships and programs we are creating, we are expanding an already robust network of people committed to global education and cultural diversity.
