“We see our experiences with community and providing volunteer service to a community as a way that we can learn.“
Anny’s interest in Experiential Learning started when she participated in Canada’s Katimavik program, then experienced another side of it while teaching in Thailand. Today, Anny works with University Students on Community Service Learning trips to Belize and Leaf Rapids, MB.
Anny has some great insights for anyone who wants to travel in a way that is respectful of the local community. In this episode, she shares her story and reflects on the importance of realizing our assumptions about people or a place, accepting what you can’t change while travelling, and how important relationships can be to having a great trip.
