About

The purpose of this international program is to study the Danish social welfare system by immersing ourselves into the Danish culture.  Our base will be at a college educating social pedagogues/educators (human services professionals) and we will spend much of our time in the company of students and practitioners. We will visit a variety of human services organizations, including programs providing services to young children, the elderly, people with disabilities, and youth at-risk and in foster care.   We will visit domestic violence and homeless shelters and the national LGBTQ advocacy organization. Additional visits can be arranged depending on the interests of the course participants.  There will be plenty of time for sightseeing in the world’s oldest monarchy and one of Europe’s quaintest capitals.  It is also possible to visit other Scandinavian countries.
