IAT's Global Education Program
IAT's Global Education Program bridges the gap between developed and underdeveloped countries through public education of global issues, and by connecting Canadian students and teachers with those in the Philippines:
Many young volunteers, over the years, have traveled to the Philippines to take part in IAT's projects. Several co-op students from the University of Victoria and Simon Fraser University have volunteered to work with IAT's programs. They conducted and documented their research on various aspects of the Kalinga tribes people. Students with various talents and skills and an adventurous spirit are always welcome.
Opportunities are available for student groups, as well as individuals, to visit and take part in IAT’s Philippines program as well as gain cultural and practical experience.
