Educators for Solidarity 2017


The Educators for Solidarity initiative is an opportunity for Saskatchewan post-secondary education students to see first-hand the work of SCIC’s member agencies on the ground, to learn about international development and global citizenship education, and to build meaningful cross-cultural relationships within and across borders. We are excited to work with pre-service educators because of their unique positioning at the beginning of your professions, eager to learn about multiple ways of knowing, teaching, and being in the world.
