CIEE Summer Community Development & Social Justice: Theory + Practice in Cape Town, South Africa

The summer Community Development and Social Justice program in Cape Town, South Africa is designed for students from all academic disciplines who want to learn about the challenges and realities of post-Apartheid South Africa through innovative courses and an integrated community service study abroad project.
