We have had Canadian student leaders start EBB On Campus groups in universities: U of Toronto, McMaster University, U of Western Ontario, York University, U of Alberta, U of Saskatchewan, McGill and U of Sunshine Coast-Brisbane, Australia. In founding “Education Beyond Borders – On Campus” (EBB-OC) groups, student leaders will have the opportunity to partake in this movement to bridge the education gap. From providing tutor/mentor services to foreign students to drives for school supplies/books to raising awareness of global educational issues and mentoring local schools, EBB-OC groups and their over 200 members bring to life the statement: “Think Globally, Act Locally!”
EBB - On Campus is a group for any students at post-secondary institutions interested in positive change through global education. The mandate of all On Campus groups is to support the greater mission of increasing access to quality education for all people, regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic situation. We are devoted to closing the education divide through student development and community education and through fund raising, presentations, and awareness campaigns, On Campus groups spread this vision to other students on their campuses and beyond. The groups focus on the building of student leaders and believe that students have the creativity, the motivation, and the will to make a difference. The experience, generosity, and dedication they possess allow them to find innovative solutions to educational problems and execute them. Therefore, On Campus groups provide students with the tools that they need to make a direct impact upon the education divide. They fund raise for schools in disadvantaged communities, assist students looking for overseas teaching experience, and organize mentorship programs.
If you are a university/college student wanting to be involved with global initiatives on your campus and converse with other like-minded youth leaders, please join the EBB On Campus group on our site: here.
