Scotland: Youth Engagement in Agriculture

Explore Scotland and practice your training in education in the same trip.

About the Program

Through this course, students will lead elementary school lessons in agriculture, implement service-learning projects in Athens, Georgia, and Dumfries, Scotland, and expand their worldviews.

ThisĀ  adventure, held in June, is the culmination of a spring course that addresses student engagement in the agricultural and environmental sciences. Through a partnership with Dumfries schools and University of Glasgow Dumfries Campus faculty and students, college students will work in teams to engage elementary students in agricultural lessons.
