SXSW EDU 2020
Learning Abroad With Black and Latin(x) Students
Our presentation explores unique personal and career outcomes that international education gives underrepresented and first-generation college students. In 7 years we’ve provided 400+ students with project-based academic internships in Beijing, Cape Town and San Jose, Costa Rica. We’ll discuss the importance of equity within international education starting as early as middle school. Our innovative, 100 passports program, works with Austin-area middle-schoolers who will travel to China in 2020.
