What is the International Partnerships Program (IPP)?

SOS students and volunteers, Guatemala

IPP is a virtual experiential-learning program that engages Carleton University students in project-based development and fosters cross cultural understanding. In collaboration with our charitable partner, Students Offering Support (SOS), this program will connect Carleton students with youth ambassadors (ages 13-20) from rural Mayan communities of Guatemala to exchange perspectives and amplify stories of historically marginalized communities. Working in small groups, students will participate in the development of multimedia stories that illustrate the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals across various geographic and cultural contexts, with a focus on ethical storytelling.

Students will spend months actively preparing for their project by conducting research on their destination, attending workshops, and participating in local community-engaged learning. This will culminate in a week-long virtual exchange with youth from rural Mayan communities in Guatemala.
