African Experience
After studying South Africa and its history over the spring semester, the University of Southern Maine's Leadership Study Abroad program will be traveling to South Africa for two weeks in the summer (June 18th - July 3rd).  

Foundational to our African exploration will be service learning with a focus on community development.  Led by program facilitators from RedZebra, we will travel to beautiful Montagu, a two hour drive from Capetown, and work with the people in its communities. 

We will also make plenty of time to see historic sites, engage in cultural experiences, and explore the stunning natural beauty of the region.
