We are looking for strong fellowship candidates who have the drive and desire to thrive in the US-Brazil Connect Fellowship. This program links US Fellows and Brazilian high school students in a transformative cross-cultural learning experience. Selected Fellows prepare for and serve in a coaching and facilitation role designed to create a fun English immersion environment for Brazilian high school students. US Fellows build skills in global leadership, explore Brazil, and create life-changing relationships. US-Brazil Connect Fellows serve as ambassadors of the US and come from a wide range of educational backgrounds. On the ground in Brazil, Fellows receive lodging, meals, local transportation, and insurance coverage. It’s not study abroad, a tour, or typical travel to Brazil. It’s a challenging and rewarding fellowship, providing a deep experience in the real world of global leadership. You do not need to speak Portuguese and you do not need to have teaching experience. You must be prepared to work hard, solve problems in unfamiliar surroundings, overcome cross-cultural and language barriers, and contribute to building a supportive community.
The Course: GLS-120 Education Experience Abroad
3 credit humanities course for students in AAS programs/ 3 credit elective course which meets the Diversity requirement for AA/AS students.
“This was the best experience of my life. The connections you make with the other Fellows and the Brazilian students are life-changing.” –Kirkwood Student, 2014
