All AFS students are equipped to become Global Changemakers. The Advanced Certificate in Global Citizenship for Social Impact course gives you the chance to practice social impact by developing your own capstone project. You’ll develop an idea to change the world, receive feedback from a committee of experts, and earn a certificate issued by AFS and the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice.
How long is the additional coursework?
Every student traveling with AFS will be able to take part in the AFS Student Learning Journey. This Advanced optional course includes six additional modules and two additional virtual live sessions during your AFS exchange. It will take around 12 hours to complete the additional modules during your program. In the additional facilitated virtual live sessions you will connect with peers — guided by trained Social Impact Facilitators—from all around the world to exchange ideas and share your project.
