Global Education Opportunities

Global education is an important part of a Bryn Mawr girl's education. It helps fulfill our mission of preparing students to be responsible and confident participants in the world, to cultivate respect for diversity and to engender a sense of responsibility to the broader community.

Why Global Education?

Global Education instills a deeper understanding of and appreciation for cultures and peoples around the world. It provides the chance for our students to continue to experience a diversity of opinions, experiences and backgrounds, which is an important part of our commitment to building diversity. It helps our students understand the complexities and interconnectedness of the global society in which we live by allowing them to assess their own culture (which includes religion, language, values, music, literature, economy, etc.) with that of another country. Most of all, global education provides an opportunity for students to get to know themselves and understand their place in this world in a way that can only be achieved by stepping outside of their comfort zones.

    Outreach360's mission is to enhance the education of underserved children in Latin America through our world class service-learning program. Bryn Mawr first partnered with Outreach 360 in 2005 and since then, many students have traveled to the Dominican Republic and have come back with not only their high school community service requirement fulfilled, but also a changed outlook on life. Students return completely inspired and motivated to continue volunteering their time within their own local community. Some have even returned to the Dominican Republic with their college groups and with their families to continue the relationships developed. Students participating in the 2020 program will learn to experience, engage and get involved within another culture while learning about themselves and the world they live in. This program will not only positively impact your daughter’s life, but also those she directly learns from and serves in the Dominican Republic. Spanish language skills are not required.
