Study abroad programs in counselor education provide graduate students an opportunity to expand their knowledge of other people and places, increase global awareness, and gain international experiences. The inclusion of service learning in study abroad allows further enhancement of participants' cultural competence. The presenter will describe the development and implementation of a short-term faculty-led study abroad program with a service learning component. Attendees will learn about advantages and pitfalls encountered during the first-time program in which counseling students provided non-therapeutic service to children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds in Oaxaca, Mexico. Participants will have ample opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences in implementing or participating in study abroad programs.
