Ycenter's INTERNATIONAL IMMERSIVE LEARNING programs take you beyond the boundaries of a traditional classroom learning to participate in solving global challenges and creating a social impact around the world.
Duration: 3 months (Program dates flexible May through December 2014)
The program will be based at Chicuque Rural Hospital (CRH), a ministry of health/missionary run hospital in the province of Inhambane. In addition to working on the field at Chicuque Rural Hospital, students will be involved with projects ongoing at The Center of Hope – community outreach public health center.
This is the first community collaboration for Ycenter in Mozambique, Africa. This is the home for Ycenter and its participants in Mozambique. Students from different background will engage with communities starting from discussion to action to impact.
Program tuition fee will include accommodation in The Center of Hope, a clean community center guesthouse. The Center of Hope was built by the hospital, and is a close walk to the hospital campus.
Accommodation in The Center of Hope includes a double occupancy room. Your roommate will be another student from Ycenter. There is a common kitchen area; basic pots and pans for cooking, an electric stove, a gas stove, and a baking oven. The guesthouse is secured by Wire fencing and 24-hour standby security personnel.
Participants will get an opportunity to travel to other remote hospital and health centers for data collection and site assessment. Your project manager will be responsible for arranging your travel and the costs are included in your program tuition fee.
All of this travel will be within 100 miles of site location and will be a one-day trip only. Students will use a local transport bus or chappas (small vans) to travel locally.
This is a healthcare organization, and the projects that are designed by community demands students majoring in engineering, public health, business and design. For Ycenter participants to get maximum benefit out of each program, we have segregated projects and outcomes into different themes pertaining to background and interest of students.
